Postthrombotic syndrome (PTS) will develop in 20% to 50% of patients within 1 to 2 years of symptomatic deep venous thrombosis (DVT). Limbs afflicted with PTS have more than three times the odds of having combined reflux and obstruction compared with limbs without PTS. Here, we present a case of an involvement of the right lower limb with classical features of PTS. Due to its low prevalence and similar presentations as those of chronic venous insufficiency lead to a missed diagnosis and prolonged follow up and complications of PTS. This can be prevented by employing CT venography as an early investigation modality. Here we treated the patient with open method as endovascular procedure was not successful.
