Abstract
When a women patient presents to the hospital with lower abdominal pain, the accurate diagnosis of ovarian vein thrombosis (OVT) could be easily delayed because it is a rare cause. This diagnosis should be considered not only in postpartum patients but also in women with pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). We report a case of OVT along with PID, which is detected by a computed tomography scan and treated successfully with anticoagulation therapy.
Key Words: Ovarian vein, Thrombosis, Pelvic inflammatory disease
