Case Reports from the ED

The EMBER Project.002

Note the subtle venous congestion and edema of the right hand and wrist in this patient with an upper extremity deep venous thrombosis (Paget-Schroetter Disease),

Here is a slightly different twist on Virchow’s triad, and one that I had not seen before until yesterday:  a spontaneous upper extremity DVT (Paget Schroetter Disease) in an otherwise healthy person with no risk factors.  It’s uncommon, but not a complete zebra.  The pathophysiology and subsequent management also differs from your traditional DVT, so I thought it was worthwhile to highlight some of the features that make it unique.
