Case: DVT During Pregnancy

Case: DVT During Pregnancy
Apr 3, 2019 1:09pm

Our Quick Question case study for April, 2019, is adapted from Chapter 35 of the March, 2019 6th edition of Rodak's Hematology, Clinical Principles and Applications:

A 33-year-old pregnant woman developed deep vein thrombosis in her left leg. She reported a family history--her mother had an episode of superficial thrombophlebitis and her brother had experienced a DVT during a 12-hour flight. Do you consider her DVT to be acquired, or is it likely to be associated with a congenital thrombosis risk factor?

Adapted from Walenga JM. Chapter 35--Normal Hemostasis. In Keohane EM, Otto CN, Walenga JM. Rodak's Hematology, Clinical Principles and Applications, 6th Edition, 2020. ISBN 978-0-323-53045-3.
