Abstract: 

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is an important disease and occurred in lower extremities, commonly.
Approximately 10% of all cases of DVT involve the upper extremities. Upper-extremity DVT is an increasingly entity due to more catheter user and pace maker implantation. Because of potential risk of Pulmonary embolism, Upper-extremity DVT is clinically important condition. Involvement of upper extremity DVT is due to catheter, trauma, infection, mechanical obstruction, IV drug abusing, surgery, etc.
Primary Upper-extremity DVT is a rare disorder that refers either to effort thrombosis (the so-called Paget-Schroetter Syndrome) or idiopathic. Patients with Paget-Schroetter Syndrome develop in young and healthy people, in dominant arm and after strenuous activity such as weight lifting, baseball pitching, etc.
In this article we report a young patient suffering from pain and swelling caused by the movement of glaciers in the right hand. After color Doppler ultrasonography and Venography, Upper-extremity DVT recognized. He was treated by anticoagulant.
We will also talk about the next treatment and patient, s 4-years follow up.
In the present article. a young patient with a diagnosis of right arm DVT post exertion with Paget-Schroetter syndrome and 4 years follow up is presented.
