PMID:  12851536     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report the case of a 17-year-old girl with constitutional protein C deficiency who developed massive femoral vein and inferior vena cava thrombosis during the course of an acute cytomegalovirus infection. The possible role of cytomegalovirus in the pathophysiology of venous thrombosis is discussed and a review of the literature is made concerning this peculiar association.
