Abstract

The association of neoplastic disease and thromboembolic disorder was first recognized by Trousseau in 1865. Since then, thromboembolic events have often been reported in a variety of malignant conditions. Recently, we experienced an unusual case of a 67-year-old ovarian cancer patient with extensive thromboembolic events involving lung, brain, extremity and abdominal cavity. In this report, we describe a systemic coagulopathy fluctuating in accordance with anticoagulant therapy, and have special regard for a role of anticoagulants for the treatment of this syndrome.
