We report a case of deep vein thrombosis occurred after mandibular reconstruction with a vascularized iliac bone graft. A 30-year-old man was referred to our clinic because of a right mandibular bone defect after segmental resection for ameloblastma of the mandible. Reconstruction with a vascularized iliac bone graft was performed with the patient under general anesthesia. On the 18th day after the operation, leg pain and edema on the left side suddenly occurred. Enhanced computed tomographic and angiographic examinations were performed. The diagnosis was deep vein thrombosis. The patient received heparin and urokinase as anticoagulant therapy and successfully recovered. There has been no evidence of pulmonary embolism.
