ABSTRACT
A case of phlegmasia cerulea dolens massive venous occlusion) secondary to carcinomia of the pancreas is described. The literature related to massive venous occlusion of varying causes is reviewed. The theories and facts pertaining to the increased blood clotting tendency in carcinoma of the pancreas and the significance of altered serum trypsin as it relates to blood clotting and fibrinolysis is reviewed, discussed, and speculated upon.
