Abstract

Thromboembolic complications are an important cause of morbidity and mortality in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). Thromboembolic events are observed more frequently during acute flare of the disease, especially patients received steroid therapy. Increase in awareness and especially anticoagulation prophylaxis in these patients are extremely important. In this article, three cases with diagnosed pulmonary thromboembolism (PE) were presented accompanied by the current literature.
