The frequency of thromboembolism is 0.3-1.2% in pregnant women, in most cases occur in veins. Especially, ovarian vein thromboses present rarely that occur in 0.02-0.18% of pregnancy. Ovarian vein thromboses are diagnosed mainly on right side, rarely bilateral or left side involvement. Ovarian vein thromboses are caused by physiologic hypercoagulability, endothelial injury, and compression of uterus during pregnancy. Mostly it occurs at postpartum. In the cases of ovarian vein thrombosis after abortion, it is very rarely reported in domestic and foreign. We report the case of bilateral ovarian vein thrombosis that was presented after abortion in early pregnancy with brief review of literature.
