ABSTRACT: Uterine fibroids are usually benign soft tissue tumors, however, when they become large, they can cause external venous compression. We present a case of a 45-year-old female who presented with phlegmasia cerulea dolens from a large uterine fibroid. She was successfully treated with hysterectomy, venous thrombectomy, and fasciotomy. We review the literature for previous reports of venous thromboembolism resulting from uterine fibroids. The patient characteristics, thrombotic complications, and treatment modalities are reviewed. Copyright © 2014 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.Annals of Vascular Surgery 11/2014; 29(2).
