Mondor's Disease in SARS-CoV-2 Infection: A Case of Superficial Vein Thrombosis in the Era of COVID-19
KeywordsCOVID-19, SARS-CoV-2, vein thrombosis, Mondor’s disease
SARS-CoV-2 causes blood hypercoagulability and severe inflammation resulting in an increased risk of thrombosis. Consequently, COVID-19 patients with cardiovascular disease seem to be at higher risk of adverse events. Mondor’s disease is a rare, generally self-limiting, thrombosis of the penis. The pathogenesis of Mondor’s disease is unknown, and it is usually diagnosed through clinical signs and with Doppler ultrasound evaluation. We describe the case of a young man with COVID-19 infection who manifested Mondor’s disease.
