A 48‐year‐old Chinese woman with obesity and with no significant past medical history presented to the emergency department with acute onset pain and swelling in the entire left leg. She had been on a long‐haul flight from New York to Singapore 3 weeks before presentation. There was no family history of unprovoked venous thromboembolism (VTE) and no symptoms suggestive of malignancy.
