In most cases, Septic thrombophlebitis occurs with intravenous catheters. However, the opposite is not true as intravenous catheters are not complicated by septic thrombophlebitis.
One of the main causes of septic thrombophlebitis is a secondary infection. This happens when a thrombosis of gynecological or obstetrical origin is infected because of the secondary microbial colonization.
Ages affected: Elder men and women, above 45-50 years
Symptoms include pain in arms, chest or legs
People may experience
Fever: Accompanied by a sore throat
Pain: Mostly in the abdominal area and redness in the affected area
Pus formation: Seldom leading to drainage of the pus
