Could DVT be either phlebothrombosis or thrombophlebitis?

Definitions of words. Phlebothromobis =clotting in a vein. Thrombophlebitis = inflammation caused by the clot. So, the simple answer is yes because virtually all phlebothrombosis will cause some inflammation, some mild and some severe (redness, swelling, pain etc..) if you are having symptoms, consult your doc for an eval/treatment. Keep physically active to reduce your risk. Good luck.

Is deep vein thrombosis a phlebothrombosis or thrombophlebitis?

Could be either. Technically, phlebothrombosis means a blood clot in a vein without inflammation. It is a term that we don't see being used very often these days. Thrombophlebitis means inflammation of a vein with a clot. Generally, when one gets a dvt, a clot forms that causes the vein to become inflamed and painful. If a DVT occurs that isn't painful, it is more likely to be a phlebothrombosis. Clear as mud? Read more...

Is thrombophlebitis the same thing as a deep vein thrombosis?

Partly so. Thrombophlebitis is blood clot within a vein, and it may be in the deep venous system (deep vein thrombosis), or in the superficial system (superficial thrombophlebitis). Anticoagulation is the treatment of dvt, and the superficial thrombophlebitis should be followed with repeat ultrasound to make sure they don't migrate into the deep system. Read more...
Not exactly. Thrombophlebitis (tp) means that there is an inflamed vein with a blood clot in it. Although you can get a tp in a deep or a superficial vein, we usually think of superficial veins when we talk about tp.
