Thrombosed interrupted inferior vena cava and retroaortic left renal vein mimicking retroperitoneal neoplasm
Vena Cava, Inferior
Anomalies of the inferior vena cava (IVC) have been recognized as one of the predisposing factors for deep vein thrombosis. Rarely, thrombosis of an anomalous retroperitoneal vein may resemble a soft tissue mass. Awareness of this fact helps preventing unnecessary interventions. We report a case of thrombosis of retroaortic left renal vein and interrupted IVC that mimicked a retroperitoneal neoplasm.
