Several anatomic abnormalities predispose patients to iliofemoral deep venous thrombosis, the most common of which is compression of the left iliac vein between the right common iliac artery and lumbar vertebrae, or May-Thurner syndrome. Other areas of venous compression can occur but are rare. This case report describes the presentation, diagnosis, and management of a patient with compression of the right iliac vein “sandwiched” between the right internal and external iliac arteries. After treatment, the patient demonstrated significant improvement in symptoms.
