Ovarian vein thrombosis (OVT) is an uncommon entity typically seen in the post-partum, patients with pelvic surgery, infection, or inflammation, and hypercoagulabilty. Concurrent pulmonary embolism (PE) may occur in these patients; however, is an uncommon complication. Treatment commonly involves anti-coagulation and antibiotics in the setting of pelvic inflammatory disease. Presented is a case report of ovarian vein thrombosis leading to pulmonary embolism in the setting of malignancy, underscoring the importance of inspecting the gonadal vein during interpretation, particularly in the emergency setting.
