We report the case of a patient with a large hiatal hernia accompanied by partial gastric volvulus in whom the computed tomography (CT) findings mimic the appearances of thrombus in the inferior vena cava (IVC). To our knowledge, this has not been previously reported as a cause of "pseudothrombosis" of the IVC on CT.
