Inflammation of a vein that occurs when a blood clot forms.
Deep venous thrombosis (or DVT) is the occlusion of a deep vein by a blood clot ("thrombus"). It generally affects the leg veins, such as the femoral vein or the popliteal vein, or occasionally the veins of the arm ("Paget-von Schroetter syndrome"). Thrombophlebitis is the more general class of pathologies of this kind.
