    Abstract

    A patient who had a bullet embolus to the right popliteal vein developed an extensive thrombophlebitis from the popliteal to the common iliac vein. We suggest that following extraction of a bullet that has embolized to a major extremity vein, it may be necessary to anticoagulate the patient.
