Abstract

Superior mesenteric vein thrombosis (SMVT) is a rare condition, usually caused by infections, intra-abdominal inflammatory diseases, portal hypertension, hypercoagulable states, or contraceptive therapy. Due to its vague symptomatology, SMVT is often diagnosed only after an abdominal contrast-enhanced computed computed tomography (CT) scan. In this article, we present a case of SMVT in a patient with a history of contraceptive drug use and a recent cytomegalovirus infection. A 36-year-old female was admitted to our department with the clinical symptoms of an acute appendicitis. the patient was a smoker and had been using hormonal contraceptive for over a year. surgery was deemed the best course of action. before the operation, blood tests showed a mild lymphocytosis and altered liver enzyme levels, while coagulation values were normal. a contrast-enhanced CT scan revealed a complete superior mesenteric vein thrombosis of bowel ischemia. Anticoagulants were immediately administered. a thrombophilia panel did not highlight any noteworthy elements. Cytomegalovirus (CMV) tests resulted positive.
