Three cases of Mondor's disease (superficial thrombophlebitis of the chest wall) are reported. One case is unusual due to the bilateral chest wall involvement, and its appearance in a man with a systemic lupus erythematosus-like syndrome probably induced by procainamide hydrochloride. Two cases occurred unilaterally in women shortly after breast surgery.
