DOI : 10.9739/uvcd.2012-31225 Oral contraceptive drugs are known to cause hypercoagulability and induce arterial and venous thrombosis especially in patients with thrombophilias. Combined oral contraceptive pills in- creases the risk of venous thromboembolism by two times and arterial thromboemboli (myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke and peripheric emboli) risk by three times. Other risk factors for venous thromboembolism are increased age, obesity and thrombophilias. Thrombosis occurs as a result of interaction between hereditary and acquired risk factors. In this case, we report a 45 year- old female patient admitted to our clinic with sudden left leg pain in whom immediate multi slice computed tomography (MDCT) revealed acute aortic occlusion.
