This study reports the case of a 53-year-old postmenopausal woman and explores her unique experience with pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS). PCS is a relatively newly recognized entity and is still a diagnosis of exclusion. We analyze the presenting symptoms and imaging findings on CT and ultrasonography. We also examine the potential causes of this ambiguous prognosis. This case is unusual in that PCS usually presents in premenopausal rather than postmenopausal women.
