ABSTRACT
Postpartum ovarian vein thrombosis (POVT), which generally occurs 2-15 days postpartum, is a rare complication. It can be confused with acute appendicitis, pelvic infection, ovarian torsion, tubo-ovarian abscess, and pyelonephritis. It is associated with morbidity and mortality. Here, we present a patient with postpartum OVT and IVC diagnosed by US and CT findings. She was treated successfully with no further need for any interventional procedures.

Mentions: Diagnosis of renal vein thrombosis was made due to hypoechoic areas in the right renal vein area suggesting thrombosis at first sight. However, the clinical probability of renal vein thrombosis in this woman was low. Because creatinine level was in normal ranges and she did not have hematuria, US and CT imaging were performed. There were hypoechoic areas causing filling defects within the right ovarian vein and inferior vena cava; right ovarian vein was enlarged; and perivascular edema was evident (Figures 1, 2(a), 2(b), and 3).
