Abstract

Paget-Schroetter syndrome (PSS) is a rare form of spontaneous upper extremity deep vein thrombosis associated with vigorous activity of the upper extremities. We present a rare case of a young swimmer who presented with a painful right upper extremity swelling, with compression ultrasound (CUS) revealing extensive venous clots in the basilic, axillary, and subclavian veins. Venous duplex revealed extrinsic compression of the subclavian vein, and catheter-based contrast venography confirmed our diagnosis of PSS. The patient was started on a therapeutic dose of subcutaneous enoxaparin and referred to a higher center for further intervention.
