Abstract
Introduction: May–Thurner Syndrome (MTS) usually presents with signs and symptoms of deep vein thrombosis or chronic venous insufficiency. We report the first case of MTS in a previously healthy adolescent female associated with a large intra-abdominal cyst arising from the right ovary.
Case Report: The patient presented with signs and symptoms suggestive of deep vein thrombosis. Imaging confirmed extensive deep vein thromboses extending into the common iliac vein. Further imaging successfully diagnosed MTS and also identified a cyst arising from the right ovary. Catheter-directed thrombolysis followed by removal of the cyst and the right ovary was performed. Following re-thromboses few days later, the patient underwent further management with surgical thrombectomy with left common iliac vein stenting and IVC filter placement.
Conclusion: The present case identifies an unusual presentation of a previously undiagnosed MTS in an adolescent female. In this case, anticoagulation alone was found to be ineffective and required the assistance of endovascular intervention.
