Fever in Thromboembolic Disease: Risk Factors, Central Venous Catheter Thrombosis and Recurrence

Beatriz Losada Vila, Juan Antonio Guerra Martínez, David Gutiérrez Abad and Maria Victoria De Torres Olombrada

This case reflects the recurrence of VTE, differential diagnosis in the presence of pleural effusion+fever and the management of central venous catheter-associated thrombosis (CVC).
