Abstract

Pulmonary vein thrombosis is rarely detected in patients with cancer, lung lobectomy, trauma and so on. We report the case of idiopathic pulmonary vein thrombosis complicated with coronary heart disease. A-57-year-old man with suspected coronary heart disease underwent computed tomography coronary angiography. He did not show any sign of malignancy in lung or other organs. Multi-detector row computed tomography demonstrated 3-dimensional images for the thrombi in bilateral lower pulmonary veins besides an old anterior myocardial infarction. Previously, few reports have described the detection of pulmonary vein thrombosis, however, multi-detector row computed tomography was thought to be useful for detecting and evaluating pulmonary vein thrombosis. © 2011 Japanese College of Cardiology.
