Abstract

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a predisposing condition of pulmonary embolism which can be fatal. Usually, DVT is found in the lower extremities. However, DVT can be occurred in the upper extremities. The usual predisposing conditions of the upper extremity DVT include insertion of central venous catheters and pacemaker wires. Here, we report a case of upper extremity DVT after in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer. The patient was successfully controlled with subcutaneous administration of low molecular weight heparin.
