Pulmonary Tuberculosis and Venous Thromboembolism

Faouzia Kambouche [2]

Abstract: Acute infections are among the risk factors for venous thromboembolism (VTE). The role of chronic infections such as active tuberculosis is poorly defined, although several case reports and case series have suggested a link association between tuberculosis and VTE. Respiratory infections are well known to increase the risk of venous thromboembolic (VTE) complications, comprising deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). The unexpected resurgence of tuberculosis (TB) in developed countries provided the rationale for evaluating VTE as a possible complication of TB; never the less, the topic has received little attention in the literature.
