The gross anatomy of the portal vein of 10 adult one humped camels by using corrosion casting and gross dissection by coloured fluid injection was studied. At the hepatic porta, the portal vein divided into 4 major branches. The right branch ramified in all different parts of the right lobe. The left branch passed to most part of liver such as right lobe, quadrate lobe, left lobe and papillary process of caudate lobe. But the caudal branch of portal vein supplies caudate process of caudate lobe and a part of right lobe and the dorsal branch of portal vein supplies a part of caudate process of caudate lobe and papillary process of caudate lobe.
Key words: Camel, corrosion cast, gross dissection, intrahepatic branches, portal vein
