We describe a case of a 57-year-old woman with repeated acute arterial thrombosis of the femoral arteries following intravenous carboplatin-based combination chemotherapy for metastatic ovarian carcinoma. By extensive workup, no other known causes of arterial thrombosis were found. To our knowledge, this is the first case describing arterial thrombosis occurring as a complication of carboplatin therapy.
