Abstract

A doença de Mondor da mama é uma tromboflebite superficial da mama que se apresenta como um cordão fibroso e espessado na região subcutânea da mama. É uma enfermidade rara, benigna e autolimitada que apresenta dor e retração da pele no nível do vaso afetado. Neste trabalho relatamos dois casos mostrando os achados mamográficos (caso 1) e ultra-sonográficos (caso 2) típicos desta anomalia.<br>Mondor's disease of the breast is a superficial thrombophlebitis of the veins of the breast characterized by the appearance of a thickened fibrotic cord in the subcutaneous tissue.
