Abstract

Paget-Schrotter syndrome is a rare form of upper extremity thrombosis of which diagnosis is usually performed with duplex Doppler ultrasound study. Even if the ultrasound reveals no abnormalities, meticulous evaluation of the clinical findings may help to prompt cure, and the early thrombolytic therapy relieves symptoms. We report a 19-year-old male patient with complaints of a suddenly developed pain, swelling, and cyanosis in his right arm working in the steel industry.
