The ovarian vein thrombophlebitis (TVO) is a rare entity which it may occur during the immediate postpartum period and carries considerable morbidity. Its incidence is 0.15 to 0.18% at vaginal delivery, with a mortality rate of 18/million pregnancies, being more common after cesarean (1-2%). We present a patient with postpartum TVO, which in the present study hypercoagulable positive lupus anticoagulant, to our knowledge there are only two cases reported in the medical literature, this being first diagnosed in the immediate postpartum. It also presents culture positive lochia, which is rare in cases described previously, and inferior vena cava thrombosis, one of the possible complications of TVO.
