Internal jugular vein thrombosis due to chronic kidney disease: A case report.



Internal jugular vein (IJV) thrombosis is a rare vascular event. It is most commonly due to prolonged central venous catheterization, infection, ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, intravenous drug abuse, malignancy or primary. We have present here a case of a 82- year- old male with chronic kidney disease who presented with left neck swelling and pain who was found to have a thrombus in the left internal internal jugular vein. He was successfully treated with conservative treatment without any complications.
