<p>Over the last 10 years there has been increasing evidence of a strong association between Idiopathic Deep vein thrombosis (IDVT) and occult malignancy. A review of world literature puts this new clinical entity as 4 -25%10. This mandates screening all cases of IDVT for a hidden malignancy. We report a case of advanced gastric carcinoma presenting as upper limb DVT with pulmonary embolism. © 2011 Indian Association of Surgical Oncology.</p>
