PEREZ, Gerardo  and  ALONSO, Juan. Enfermedad tromboembólica venosa idiopática como manifestación inicial de cáncer oculto: ¿Cuán extenso debe ser el screening paraclínico en estos pacientes?. Rev. Méd. Urug. [online]. 2012, vol.28, n.2, pp.148-153. ISSN 1688-0390.

Summary Idiopathic venous thromboembolic disease is a common manifestation of an apparently occult cancer. This scenario is always a challenge for clinical physicians whom must select a diagnostic strategy in order to find this hidden tumor. The aim of this paper is, based on current knowledge, to recommend a scheme of study in an effort to diagnose the majority of the tumors and causing no iatrogenic disease. This review has a brief clinical vignette as a header which seeks only to illustrate a common clinical situation and place the reader in the context it refers. Then, available scientific evidence is reviewed to conceptualize the theoretical framework from which final recommendations emerge.
