Inferior mesenteric vein thrombosis is a rare complication after laparoscopic procedures. We presented a case of a 55-year-old woman who suffered from abdominal pain for two days. She received laparoscopic left hemicolectomy for sigmoid colon cancer two weeks ago. Computed tomography scan revealed a thrombus of the inferior mesenteric vein. The patient was managed conservatively in hospital. Her condition improved gradually without further symptoms and she was discharged after two weeks.
