Ovarian vein thrombosis is a rare pathology that occurs most often in the postpartum period. It usually manifests by a non-specific abdominal pain with or without fever. It can clinically resemble acute appendicitis if the pain is located in the right iliac fossa. We report the case of a 19-year-old female patient who presented with febrile inflammatory pain of the right iliac fossa at 48 hours postpartum of an eutocic delivery, in whom a computed tomography (CT) scan showed an extensive thrombosis of the right ovarian vein with a normal-looking appendix. The treatment was based on broad-spectrum antibiotics and anticoagulant therapy, with a good clinical and biological evolution.
