Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) is a rare, life-threatening disease caused by obstruction of hepatic venous outflow. Common presentations are right upper quadrant pain, ascites, and hepatomegaly. A diagnosis of Budd-Chiari syndrome should be suspected when liver disease occurs in a patient with known risk factors for hypercoagulable state. We report a 22-years old transgender man presented with jaundice, marked ascites and hepatomegaly. Imaging studies showed complete thrombosis of all hepatic veins. Finally, he was diagnosed with Budd-Chiari syndrome with antiphospholipid syndrome.
