We report about a 27-years old female patient with acute liver failure due to an acute Budd Chiari Syndrom (thrombosis of all three liver veins an vena cava inferior) with caval web, birth control pills and after long distance flight. After successfull aspiration of the caval thrombus and dilatation of caval web liver transplantation could be bypassed. Two weeks after intervention the patient was in a good healthy condition with normal laboratory values, normal liver size, normal perfusion of the V. cava inferior and signs of reperfusion of the middle liver vein.
