Epstein Barr virus (EBV), which may develop at any age, is a common infection of childhood and young adulthood. EBV is transmitted by oropharyngeal secretions, close contact, blood, and by contaminated articles. Clinically, it is characterized by fever, sore throat, fatigue, and generalized lymphadenopathy. EBV-associated thrombosis has rarely been reported, mostly in immunocompromised patients. In this paper, we report on a 46-year old male admitted with fatigue, lack of appetite, and abdominal pain.In our case, chronic active EBV-triggered superior mesentericvein thrombosiswas detected; factorVleiden mutationwas found. The patient was operated on for mesenteric ischemia. Recurrent acute kidney injury (AKI) developed due to short bowel syndrome. AKI was treated with fluid and electrolyte replacement. In this article, we present an immunocompetent patient with superior mesentericvein thrombosis and hereditary thrombophilia
