May-Thurner syndrome is a rare condition that develops due to external compression of left main iliac vein by right main iliac artery. Patients present with swelling and pain symptoms due to venous stasis in the left lower extremity. Accompanying deep vein thrombosis may also be present. Although there are no specific diagnostic criteria, physical examination findings and imaging techniques are guiding. Endovenous stenting is mainly used in the treatment. Here we discussed a patient with May-Thurner syndrome accompanied by iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis who presented with pain and swelling in the left leg, treated with endovenous stenting simultaneous with pharmacomechanical thrombolysis.
