GONZALEZ-BOSQUET, Eduardo. Ovarian vein thrombosis: risk factors, diagnosis and treatment. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2009, vol.69, n.3, pp.347-349. ISSN 0025-7680.

Ovarian vein thrombosis is an uncommon complication (0.002-0.05%) related to hypercoagulated status of women. The most frequent condition associated to ovarian vein thrombosis is pregnancy, but there are other possible causes. We present a case of a 31 year old pregnant woman at 16th week of gestation who had spontaneuos septic abortion complicated with an ovarian vein thrombosis. A discussion of risk factors, diagnostic and treatment options of ovarian vein thrombosis are presented.

Keywords : Ovarian vein thrombosis; Abortion; Sepsis.
