    I searched for non cirrhotic portal fibrosis and found lots of sites with info.
    Unfortunately they are written for medical professionals.

    "Portal" seems to refer to a vein, and the word hypertension appears often.
    I think that means high blood pressure.

    There are treatments which one site said are effective in 90 -95% of patients.
    Etiology (cause) was said to be obscure on one site.

    Sounds to me like your dr. should spend some time explaining the
    situation to you.

    Good luck
