ABSTRACT

Observation: This patient was a 40-year-old housewife with dysphonia, physical asthenia, palpitations, fever and cervical tumefaction that had been going on for 2 months, no known cardiovascular risk factor, such as medical history, ischemic stroke. Heart sounds were regular at 110 bpm, blood pressure = 120/80 mmhg, to the lungs there are sibilant rattles. Elsewhere, there is a painful left lateral cervical tumefaction febrile to the touch. Temperature = 38°C. The rest of the exam is peculiar. Conclusion: Jugular vein thrombosis is a rare variety of unusual localization of venous thromboembolism. It must be suspected in the presence of a painful cervical swelling and confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging or to scan with contrast or ultrasound. Anticoagulant therapy should be instituted as soon as possible to avoid the formidable complication of pulmonary embolism.
