Abstract

Cervical cancer is a common   cancer associated with high morbidity and mortality among women in Sri Lanka and worldwide. Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a well-known complication of malignancy and chemotherapy. However, arterial thrombosis in the presence of cancer is not as widely encountered as venous thrombosis and the concurrent occurrence of venous and arterial thrombosis remains a rarity. Here we report a case of concomitant venous and arterial thrombosis in a middle-aged woman with advanced cervical carcinoma.
