Post-partum ovarian vein thrombosis extending to inferior vena-cava: A rare case report

Introduction: Postpartum ovarian vein thrombosis (POVT) is rare but life-threatening complication of puerperium. It is seen in 0.05 - 0.2 % deliveries. Nearly 80-90% of POVT occurs in the right ovarian vein, possibly explained based on its anatomic position and blood flow dynamics. An extension of POVT to inferior vena-cava is relatively rare and very few cases are reported in literature.
