Abstract

Deep veins thrombosis is commonly encountered in clinical practice. The reasons and risk factors are well known. Unusual conditions leading to complete obstruction of larger veins are rarely anticipated. A 34-years-old woman was treated in our hospital because of segmental thrombosis of her right common femoral vein. Color duplex Doppler revealed a solitary thrombus 5 centimeters in lengths narrowing it by 80–90%. During emergency operation a small tumour in the orifice of greater saphenous vein was found with adhering thrombus. Segmental thrombosis of large vein can be connected with an occult underlying pathology. Color duplex Doppler alone does not allow complete evaluation of such problems.
