Duplicated inferior vena cava with associated ilio-femoral deep vein thrombosis


We present the case of a fit and well 20-year-old gentleman who presented to our emergency department with unilateral lower limb pain and swelling. Subsequent imaging revealed a left ilio-femoral deep vein thrombosis, with associated duplication of his inferior vena cava. He was treated conservatively with a heparin infusion, warfarin and compression therapy prior to being discharged following a short inpatient stay.
