You can get such abdominal clots for various reasons, which can be either local or systemic.Generally the treatment offered is thrombolysis and follow up to see resolution of clot on either CT scan or Doppler.

One needs long term treatment and prophylaxis treatment for this.Interval follow up for few years is recommended.
