Résumé

Mondor’s disease (MD) or thrombophlebitis of the subcutaneous veins of the chest region is a rare condition, with unknown etiology in most cases Herein, we report a singular case associating Mondor’s disease and antiphospholipid syndrome in a 63-year-old woman, with a good outcome and no clinical recurrence after antiplatelet therapy.

The association between Mondor’s disease and antiphopholipid syndrome is extremely rare and has been described in few cases.
