Sonographic diagnosis of clinically unsuspected thrombosis of the medial marginal vein and dorsal arch of the foot
- 21 Downloads
Foot pain is common in daily clinical practice but thrombosis of the foot veins is rarely considered as a differential diagnosis. Several cases of plantar veins thrombosis are reported in literature but a detailed description of ultrasonographic findings in case of thrombosis of the dorsal venous arch of the foot is lacking. We report a case of ours with a thrombosis of the medial marginal vein and dorsal venous arch of the foot, showing its close anatomical relation with the extensor hallucis longus tendon.
