2. <25%.
3. >50%.
4. >75%.
5. 100%.





Answer:

The correct answer for the question "How frequent is pulmonary embolism in ovarian vein thrombosis?" is:

2. <25%.



Explanation
1. OVT causing PE is rare although not 0%. [The risk of PE has been estimated to be approximately13% in one study]

2. OVT causing PE is quite uncommon with one study citing 13% rare.

3. OVT causing PE is quite uncommon with one study citing 13% rare.

4. OVT causing PE is quite uncommon with one study citing 13% rare.

Abstract
Ovarian vein thrombosis (OVT) is an uncommon entity typically seen in the post-partum, patients with pelvic surgery, infection, or inflammation, and hypercoagulabilty. Concurrent pulmonary embolism (PE) may occur in these patients; however, is an uncommon complication. Treatment commonly involves anti-coagulation and antibiotics in the setting of pelvic inflammatory disease. Presented is a case report of ovarian vein thrombosis leading to pulmonary embolism in the setting of malignancy, underscoring the importance of inspecting the gonadal vein during interpretation, particularly in the emergency setting.
