Abstract

Mondor’s disease, or thrombophlebitis of the superficial veins of the thoracoabdominal wall, is a rare condition which typically occurs after trauma, vigorous exercise, or surgery to the chest wall. Here we present a case of Mondor’s disease in an orthopedic surgeon after wearing a tight-fitting lead vest during surgery. Physicians and staff should be aware of the possibility of venous compression and thrombophlebitis from wearing tight clothing in the OR.
