Acute symp­to­mat­ic ­upper extrem­ity ­deep ­vein throm­bo­sis (­DVT) ­are esti­mat­ed to ­account ­for ­only 2-4% of ­all ­deep ­vein throm­bo­sis. Upper extrem­ity ­DVT lead­ing to phleg­ma­sia ceru­lea ­dolens (­PCD) ­occurs in an esti­mat­ed 2-5% of ­these cas­es. Progression of ­PCD to ­venous gan­grene is extreme­ly ­rare ­with ­only 16 pre­vi­ous­ly report­ed cas­es in ­the lit­er­a­ture. Only 7 of ­the cit­ed cas­es doc­u­ment sig­nif­i­cant tis­sue ­loss. This ­report ­describes a 61-­year-­old ­male ­who devel­oped ­upper extrem­ity ­DVT com­pli­cat­ed by ­PCD ­which ­led to ­venous gan­grene ­and ­limb ­loss.
