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.
