Abstract

Mondor’s disease is a rare superficial thrombophlebitis of subcutaneous vein and usually occurs in the anterior and lateral chest. Penile Mondor’s disease is a rare condition characterized by superficial thrombophlebitis of the dorsal vein of the penis. We report a rare case of atypical penile Mondor’s disease involved the right posterior scrotal vein, in a patient affected by essential thrombocythemia. A 50-years old man presented with thrombosis of right posterior scrotal vein. He presented with an indurated subcutaneous and painful cord, palpable along the length of the involved vein and located parallel to the urethra in the posterior aspect of the scrotum. It was treated with lowmolecular- weight heparin and resolves without sequelae. The scrotal vein thrombosis is a fairly rare disease.
