Abstract

INTRODUCTION - Mondor's disease is an uncommon disorder occuring mostly in middle-aged women and characterized by superficial thrombophlebitis classically involving the thoraco-epigastric veins. Rarely, cases have been reported in atypical sites (upper arms, abdomen, groin and penis). CASE REPORT - This is the first case being published in the Hungarian literature. The young male patient's complaints were caused by penile vein thrombosis which was demonstrated on physical examination and Doppler ultrasonography. Since hereditary thrombophilia and malignancy has been ruled out, we assume that local trauma and venous stasis caused by previous abdominal surgery have been the etiological factors of the disease. CONCLUSION - We give a review of the literature and would like to draw the attention to this rare type of thrombosis, its risk factors and the difficulties of the therapy.
