Abstract

Ovarian vein thrombophlebitis is an uncommon, but potentially serious, complication of complicated deliveries. Prolonged rupture of membranes prior to delivery is a pre-disposing factor. We report a case of a patient with prolonged ruptured membranes, who developed right ovarian vein thrombophlebitis. The patient was managed medically and responded favourably to treatment.
