Metastatic melanoma presenting as intravenous tumourthrombus

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleOtherpeer-review

Abstract

Tumour thrombus is a complication that occurs when a malignancy
invades into the vasculature, occluding its lumen. Here, we present a
rare case of melanoma tumour thrombus of the great saphenous vein of
the left thigh, which was diagnosed on 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron
emission tomography/computed tomography (F-18 FDG PET/CT) and
ultrasound guided biopsy, and responded well to immunotherapy with
pembrolizumab.
