Abstract

Ovarian vein thrombosis (OVT) is a rare complication of pregnancy. However, recognition and treatment is critical because a delay in diagnosis could lead to significant maternal morbidity. The diagnosis of OVT remains a challenge because there is no known profile of risk factors. Current controversies concern radiologic diagnosis, appropriate treatment strategies including antibiotics and anticoagulation, treatment duration, and testing for thrombophilias.
