Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Endometriosis is a medical condition in women wherein endometrial cells deposited in the area outside the uterine cavity are influenced by hormonal changes, and produce symptoms depending on the site of implantation. A unique case of retroperitoneal endometriosis causing deep vein thrombosis from extrinsic compression of the right iliac vein is described. Clinical presentation with cyclical leg swelling, coincidental with menstruation and culminating with deep vein thrombosis, although very suggestive, has not been previously reported.
