Abstract

OBJECTIVE. We describe a possible relationship between inferior vena cava anomalies and extensive thrombosis of the inferior vena cava and the iliac and femoral veins. CONCLUSION. An anomaly of the inferior vena cava should be considered in young patients who present with deep vein thrombosis of the femoral and iliac veins. Coagulation abnormalities, frequently found in these patients, may be a contributory factor.
