veno-occlusive disease

A liver disorder in which the small branches of the hepatic vein within the liver become obliterated, but not by blood clotting. The condition can be caused by drinking ‘bush tea’ containing pyrrolizidine alkaloids, and in other ways. The effects are almost identical to those of the BUDD-CHIARI SYNDROME.
