Abstract

Deep upper limbs veins thrombosis is a relatively rare condition in comparison to the lower limbs thrombosis. Most commonly occurs as a complication of major veins catheterisation. It may also be caused by stenosis of axillar or subclavian veins due to neoplastic infiltration, enlarged lymph nodes or congenital thrombophilia. The Paget-von Schrötter syndrome caused by exercise – induced thrombosis described in this case report is very infrequent.
