The characteristics of the disease are reviewed and the most usual diagnostic and therapeutic methods. Methods: The case of a 41 year old man is reviewed who consulted for pain and induration on the proximal part of the penis. Results: After phisical examination and Eco-doppler was made the diagnosis of Mondor´s disease. He receibed treatment with non steroidal antiinflamatories and antibiotics. Conclusions: The dorsal vein thrombosis is a rare disease with pain an induration of the dorsal part of the penis. The ethiology can be traumatic, neoplasic, excesive sexual activity or abstinence. Is necesary the diferencial diagnosis with esclerosant linphangitis and the most important imaging is the Eco-doppler.
