Abstract

Mondor's disease is an uncommon superficial thrombophlebitis of the anterolateral thoraco-ab dominal wall. It's cause is unknown, but it is often associated with recent local trauma, muscular strain, and strenuous exercise. It has clinical features of a palpable, tender, linear cutaneous nodule and is always almost unilateral, and solitary, but rarely multiple. A 39-year-old man presented multiple cord-like tender subcutaneous linear lesions on the left ventrolateral thoracoabdominal wall for 3 weeks. He had done strenuous exercise and stretching for 2 months prior to his visit. Histologic finding revealed thrombophlebitis. The lesion did not involute with systemic and intralesional steroids, but three months later, it disappeared.
