Summary of "Intimal sarcoma of the inferior vena cava with extension to the right atrium, bilateral renal vasculature, and bilateral venae iliaca communis, accompanied by severe thrombocytopenia."

A 66-year-old Asian female diagnosed with an occupied mass of the inferior vena cava (IVC) case with extension to the right atrium, bilateral renal vasculature, and venae iliaca communis, which caused severe thrombocytopenia and severe liver and kidney dysfunction. The postoperative pathological diagnosis was high-grade undifferentiated intimal sarcoma. There have been less than 10 cases of venous undifferentiated intimal sarcomas reported in the literature, three of which occurred in the IVC. Unfortunately, the patient died of multiple organ failure in the intensive care unit postoperatively.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Mechanical devices inserted in the inferior vena cava that prevent the migration of blood clots from deep venous thrombosis of the leg.

A vein which arises from the right ascending lumbar vein or the vena cava, enters the thorax through the aortic orifice in the diaphragm, and terminates in the superior vena cava.

The venous trunk which receives blood from the lower extremities and from the pelvic and abdominal organs.

A rare congenital abnormality resulting in the URETER passing dorsal to and being obstructed by the INFERIOR VENA CAVA.

A condition that occurs when the obstruction of the thin-walled SUPERIOR VENA CAVA interrupts blood flow from the head, upper extremities, and thorax to the RIGHT ATRIUM. Obstruction can be caused by NEOPLASMS; THROMBOSIS; ANEURYSM; or external compression. The syndrome is characterized by swelling and/or CYANOSIS of the face, neck, and upper arms.
