(9,11,13) This avalvular venous network may provide the necessary conduit between contralateral renal capsular veins
and spermatic cord vessels, thus potentially explaining distant seeding from a right RCC to a left testicle, as in our case above.
(1,3,4) Prominent collateral vessels may develop, and the gonadal, ascending lumbar, adrenal, periureteral, and capsular veins
are major potential collateral veins that can develop from left renal vein compression or obstruction.
In this report, we present an extremely rare case of thrombophlebitis of the right renal capsular vein occurring during the early postpartum period.
Based on a diagnosis of thrombophlebitis of the right renal capsular vein, anticoagulant treatment (2000 IU subcutaneous enoxaparin twice per day) was started on the tenth day.
In this report, we present a case of thrombophlebitis occurring in the right renal capsular vein. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of this status.
CT scanning can be useful for the diagnosis of postpartum thrombophlebitis of the renal capsular vein. Since symptoms of this disease are nonspecific, such as fever and lower abdominal pain, patients tend to be initially diagnosed with postpartum endometritis and administered antibiotics.
In conclusion, postpartum thrombophlebitis can occur in the renal capsular vein. Although this condition is extremely rare, it should be considered when evaluating postpartum patients who display persistent fever and lower abdominal pain.
