Abstract

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is a disease caused by abnormal blood coagulation in the deep veins of the lower limbs. Hypercoagulability and venous stasis during the perinatal period increase the risk of thrombosis. Iliac Vein Compression Syndrome (IVCS) is caused by compression of the left common iliac vein by the right common iliac artery and lumbar vertebra, leading to left common iliac vein stenosis, fiber adhesion and ultimately iliac vein thrombosis. IVCS is the main cause of acute iliac-femoral vein thrombosis. Herein, we report a case of a 38-year-old woman who was pregnant for 5 weeks and 5 days. She suddenly experienced swelling and pain in her left lower limb and was initially diagnosed with DVT and then IVCS upon further examination.
