May–Thurner syndrome (MTS) is an anatomically variable clinical condition in which the left common iliac vein is compressed between the right common iliac artery and the underlying spine.

We would like to substantiate that MTS is often underdiagnosed, and it should always be suspected in left iliofemoral vein thrombosis in young individuals.
