Portal hypertension in children has many causes, and the treatment depends very much on the underlying condition. The treatment may be quite observational in cases caused by mild intrinsic liver disease, to operative hepatic revascularization, or possible liver transplant in those children who have decompensated cirrhosis or severe manifestations of portosystemic shunting.
