I am thinking this question. Thrombosis can result in

  1. organisation of thrombus,
  2. sepsis
  3. thromboembolism,
  4. fibrinoid swelling
  5. adiposity.

I fibrinoid swelling (edema) (4) can occur. Also, I think (3) thromboembolism can occur and also (1) organisation of thrombus.

What can thrombosis result in?

Fibrinoid swelling involves necrosis and swelling so no. Organisation of thrombus refers to some very large space of organising thrombus in different ways - so no, since there is an exact mechanism under. Based on my interpretation of Robbins -book.

The correct answer is 3. thromboembolism. Thromboembolism is a combination of thrombosis and its main complication, embolism.
