Abstract: The authors report two cases of sclerotherapy for telangiectasias, which complicated with deep venous thrombosis. The first case was confirmed by phlebography and the second one by duplex scan. One patient, 8 years later, had a spontaneous lesser saphenous vein thrombophlebitis, which resulted in positive thrombophilia investigation for factor V Leiden. The other patient had negative investigation for thrombophilia. There are very few reports on thromboembolism after sclerotherapy in the literature. This study aims to warn against this possibility, valuing the complaints of pain and swollen leg after the sclerotherapy. In case of clinical suspicion, a duplex scan should be performed.
