Risking Life and Limb: Management of Phlegmasia Alba and Cerulea Dolens
Case: A year-old man with history of hypertension presents to the ED with a diffusely swollen, tight, painful, and discolored left leg.

He went to sleep, hoping this leg would improve, but he was woken by severe pain and presented to the ED for evaluation.

Phlegmasia cerulea dolens
Phlegmasia cerulea dolens literally: painful blue inflammation is an uncommon severe form of deep venous thrombosis which results from extensive thrombotic occlusion blockage by a thrombus of the major and the collateral veins of an extremity. There is a high risk of massive pulmonary embolism , even under anticoagulation. Foot gangrene may also occur. Usually, it occurs in those afflicted by a life-threatening illness. This phenomenon was discovered by Jonathan Towne , a vascular surgeon in Milwaukee , who was also the first to report the "white clot syndrome" now called heparin induced thrombocytopenia [HIT]. Two of their HIT patients developed phlegmasia cerulea dolens that went on to become gangrenous. Treatment is by catheter-directed thrombolytic therapy , a type of thrombolysis.
Phlegmasia Cerulea Dolens with Compartment Syndrome
A year-old woman with a history of breast cancer is brought to the emergency department with one day of left leg swelling, followed by the development of severe pain and discoloration today. Vitals signs are remarkable only for tachycardia with a HR of Physical examination shows a tense, edematous, tender left leg with mottling and cyanosis.

Phlegmasia Cerulea Dolens
Venous thromboembolism VTE is a major healthcare problem that results in significant mortality, morbidity, and expenditure of resources. Phlegmasia cerulea dolens PCD is an uncommon but potentially life-threatening complication of acute DVT characterized by marked swelling of the extremities with pain and cyanosis, which in turn may lead to arterial ischemia and ultimately gangrene with high amputation and mortality rates. The key in treating such patients is to provide quick and effective treatment to save the limbs and the patient. The complications of acute venous thromboembolism VTE , including deep vein thrombosis DVT and pulmonary embolism PE , are the most common preventable causes of hospital death and a source of substantial long-term morbidity. Phlegmasia cerulea dolens PCD is an uncommon but potentially life-threatening complication of acute DVT characterized by marked swelling of the extremities with pain and cyanosis, which in turn may lead to arterial ischemia and ultimately cause gangrene with high amputation and mortality rates. There is no consensus on its treatment, and the reported treatment methods are usually suboptimal.
