A case of recurrent deep vein thrombosis following standard clomiphene citrate treatment, in a patient with a history of a previous episode of deep vein thrombosis, is described. This case indicates that deep vein thrombosis might be a rare but hazardous complication of clomiphene citrate treatment in patients with certain risk factors. We recommend that the use of clomiphene citrate in such cases be undertaken with caution and under close surveillance.
