Cruveilhier - Baumgarten (CB) syndrome is a rare medical condition in which liver cirrhosis is associated with portal hypertension causing dilatation of the umbilical and the paraumbilical veins (giant paraumbilical vein). It is important to know about the dilatation of the portosystemic circulation to prevent inadvertent bleeding during any surgical procedure. There are only a few reported cases of CB syndrome and only one with associated multiple splenic artery aneurysms.
