May-Thurner syndrome: an uncommon cause for deep vein thrombosis



May-Thurner syndrome: an uncommon cause for deep vein thrombosis



Harefuah 148(12): 818



May-Thurner syndrome is an uncommon cause for developing a left leg deep venous thrombosis (DVT) in young women. The DVT is caused as a result of the repeated pulsation of the right common iliac artery on the left common iliac vein (normally the artery is posterior to the vein). Early diagnosis of the syndrome can lead to an early intervention, preventing future complications as DVT. This is a case study of a patient with May-Thurner syndrome diagnosed after the development of left leg DVT.
