A 28-year-old male was referred to our emergency department with a swollen left arm after intensive exercise. Physical examination revealed distension of the superficial veins of his left arm and chest. Duplex ultrasound confirmed the diagnosis of Paget-Schroetter syndrome. He was successfully treated with thrombolysis and first rib resection.
