Mesenteric ischaemia is an uncommon condition with high mortality and morbidity, the causes can be embolic, thrombotic arterial or venous. Mesenteric venous thrombosis is an uncommon cause of bowel infarction, and it accounts for only 2-10% of the cases of Mesenteric Bowel ischaemia. We are reporting an interesting and uncommon case a fifty-year-old Filipina lady, not known to have any previous medical problems, presented to us with severe abdominal pain with minimal signs. Her CT scan confirmed Mesenteric Venous ischaemia and Bowel infarction. The lady was found to suffer from Protein C and S deficiency.
