FERNANDEZ VICENTE, Abilio José; PINILLA LOPEZ, Elsa; GONZALEZ TRUJILLO, David  y  ARJOL LOPEZ, Elena. Mondor's disease by COVID-19. Thrombophlebitis of the superficial thoracoepigastric vein due to coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.3, pp.156-158.  Epub 29-Nov-2021. ISSN 2386-8201.

Numerous authors have proven the ability of SARS-CoV-2 to cause phlebitis and thrombosis in different locations. Mondor's disease is characterized by thrombophlebitis of the superficial veins at a thoracoabdominal level due to various aetiology. In this paper we report the case of a 41-year-old patient with Mondor's disease a few days after having recovered from COVID-19. The patient presented mastodynia accompanied by a palpable cord which began on the axilla, crossed the mammary gland and, after several days clinical course, reached the ipsilateral inguinal region. The patient was treated with LMWH and NSAID and presented favourable clinical course. Due to the high prevalence of post-COVID thrombosis the family doctor had to reconsider the need to personalize the supply of antithrombotic prophylaxis and the need to monitor the possibility of onset of any of these cases; even after overcoming the acute phase of the disease.

Palabras clave : coronavirus SARS-CoV-2; COVID-19; Mondor's disease; thrombophlebitis.
