A rare case of endometriosis invading external iliac vein causing deep vein thrombosis

      A 25 year old nulliparous woman presented with a 3 day duration of fever, lower abdominal pain, and shortness of breath. On physical examination, there was a 14 week–sized pelvic mass. A computerized tomography scan showed bilateral multiloculated adnexal masses with compression on the left external iliac vein and a hypodensity within the vein suggesting a thrombus (Figure 1).
