Axillary Web Syndrome or Cording, a Variant of Mondor Disease, Following Axillary Surgery

Arch Dermatol. 2009;145(10):1199-1200. doi:10.1001/archdermatol.2009.239

Cording, an unusual form of superficial sclerosing thrombophlebitis, is a variant of the disease described by Henri Mondor in 1939.1 Similar lesions have also been found in the penis, groin, abdomen, arm, and axilla and have been reported under a variety of names, depending on which body site is affected. In the axilla, the condition is called axillary web syndrome (AWS) and is frequently seen following axillary lymph node clearance and sentinel lymph node biopsy. We report a case of AWS after wide local excision of a microcystic adnexal carcinoma.
