Scientific Tracks Abstracts: J Blood Disord Transfus


This study presents a case report of a 54 year old female recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Sudden onset of right leg pain with subsequent diagnosis of acute limb ischaemia and death two days later from septicaemia was observed. Venous thrombosis is a common complication of cancer, especally pancreatic cancer. However, the research available on arterial thrombosis as a complication of pancreatic cancer is sparse and it is hoped that there will be a greater vigilance for both venous and arterial thrombus as this is a very serious complication and can be difficult to manage. This case report includes in depth look at the research available on arterial thrombosis in pancreatic cancer.
