Abstract: A systemic thrombus embolization after deep vein thrombosis (DVT) caused by uterine myomas is very rare. The authors recently had experienced this association in a single 46-year-old Thai woman with previous healthy history and no other known risk factors for development of DVT. On arrival at a nearby small hospital, the deceased had presented with an abrupt onset of right hemiparesis, and 34 hours after admission to the hospital, she suddenly developed a cardiopulmonary collapse and was pronounced dead. Autopsy examination revealed that her death was attributed to massive pulmonary thromboembolism with systemic embolization through coexistent patent foramen ovale after DVT of her bilateral lower extremities caused by uterine myomas.
