Abstract :
Inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombosis is a rare but significant complication in hospitalized patients. However, relevant information regarding IVC thrombosis, especially on its morphology, remains scarce. We present three cases of IVC thrombosis, with each showing a different morphology: mural, floating, and small polyp-like thrombus.

Introduction :
Deep venous thromboses (DVTs) and pulmonary embolisms (PEs), commonly described together as venous thromboembolisms (VTEs), are important complications in hospitalized patients. DVTs commonly occur in the deep veins of the lower leg or the proximal veins of the iliofemoral segment [1] and rarely occur in the inferior vena cava (IVC) [2–5]. Some case reports and reviews of IVC thrombosis currently exist; however, little information has been published regarding its morphology. We present three cases of IVC thrombosis, with each showing a different morphology........
