Mondor’s disease is an uncommon disorder characterized by superficial thrombosis involving the thoracic lateral vein and/or others vein of the thoracic superficial venous net. The most common clinical symptoms include lateral chest pain and wall tension, as well as the presence of a tender subcutaneous linear or winding cord-like structure, often with skin retraction, corresponding to the affected vessel. Mondor’s disease may be primary or secondary to different causes, and usually is benign and self-limited, requiring only symptomatic treatment. We describe a case report of recurrent Mondor’s disease in a young woman free from recognized risk factors.
