Thrombosis is a common complication of cancer, occurring in up to 15% of patients. This article reviews the diagnosis and management of the most common cancer-related thrombotic problem; deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and catheterrelated thrombosis. Rarer entities, such as cerebral vein thrombosis and Budd-Chiari syndrome, are also reviewed.
