Mondor Disease Associated With Physical Strain: Report of 2 Cases

Arch Dermatol. 2005;141(6):800-801. doi:10.1001/archderm.141.6.800

In 1939, Henri Mondor described for the first time a superficial phlebitis of the chest wall. It classically involves the lateral thoracic, thoracoepigastric, and superior epigastric veins. However, the disease may appear in atypical sites (upper and lower limbs, abdomen, groin, and penis).1 We report 2 cases of classic Mondor disease occurring after unusual physical stress.
