Adult onset still's disease (AOSD) is a rare autoinflammatory disease displaying with a wide range of non-specific symptoms and budd-chiari syndrome (BCS) is an uncommon disorder characterized by obstruction of hepatic venous outflow. We present the case of a young patient who presented with persistent fever, sore throat, elbow, hand fingers and knees arthralgia with abdominal pain. The patient's symptoms had started 7 days before the referral. Imaging and laboratory data led to the diagnosis of BCS in the context of AOSD. The patient treated with corticosteroid in combination of warfarin with favorable outcome and complete improvement of signs and symptoms. We came to this conclusion AOSD complicated with BCS is a rare but potentially life-threatening entity. Clinicians should be aware of this complication.
