Thrombosis 2

Created by Prof. Mike Dixon

Male age 71

Tissue: Vein

This man was in poor health and contracted bronchopneumonia following a flu-like illness. He was put on antibiotics. After several days confined to bed, he developed swelling in both legs. Four days later he died suddenly while using a bed-pan. The virtual slide is taken from a firm dilated segment in the left popliteal vein.

Both pulmonary arteries are completely occluded by coils of recent thrombus.
