It is associated with thrombophlebitis of portal and hepatic veins. The natural history and role of anticoagulation for this regional thrombophlebitis is unclear. In a retrospective study of 169 subjects with KLA over 7 years, thrombophlebitis was identified in 53/169 (31.4%). Only 1 received therapeutic anticoagulation. Despite this 30/49 (73.2%) of those with follow up scan available showed improvement or recanalization (mean duration between scans 44 days). Abscess resolution was associated with improvement in thrombophlebitis.
