A 16-year-old boy with morbid obesity and asthma presented with 1 week of progressive right leg pain, swelling and discolouration that started 1 week after a minor fall. Ultrasound and then CT with contrast revealed a large occlusive deep venous thrombosis (DVT) extending from the calf through the inferior vena cava bifurcation. Heparin was initiated and catheter-directed thrombolysis with tissue plasminogen activator and balloon angioplasty were performed with good flow postprocedure, however, the clot reaccumulated after several days and the procedure had to be repeated...

Coronary heart disease which is particularly important, develops in women 10-15 years later than in men. However, the clinical course in women is often more complicated. In women, thrombophilic predispositions play a more important role before menopause and metabolic risk factors after menopause compared to men...

Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is a disease with multiple known etiologies that present with a remarkably wide spectrum of clinical signs and symptoms. We present a case of a 34-year-old man with a history of meningeal symptoms for 1 week after receiving a lumbar injection for lower back pain. He subsequently developed dense right hemiplegia and global aphasia. Head magnetic resonance imaging revealed superior sagittal sinus thrombosis. The patient was started on intravenous heparin but deteriorated neurologically...
