Abstract: Thromboembolic venous disease is a frequent and severe disease, unfortunately still too often diagnosed late due to a polymorphism of its clinical presentation. Etiological research is necessary because it is often a revealing mode of other pathologies whose treatment can sometimes control the thromboembolic process or limit its consequences. Our work focuses on the thromboembolic syndrome encountered in the emergency department of our training. Out of 3110 hospitalizations through the emergency department, 41 patients were treated with venous thrombosis from different sites, including 18 patients, or 44% with unusual sites related to various pathologies. Thromboembolic disease is a medical emergency requiring the use of anticoagulant therapy in the shortest possible time. However, apart from a context which favors patent, the search for an etiological diagnosis is necessary.
