Thrombophlebitis may be listed as one of the most common conditions in peripheral vascular disorders. The basic and contributory causes have been discussed. The possibility of even a trivial injury producing thrombophlebitis, which not infrequently involves medio-legal suits, has been emphasized. The management of thrombophlebitis has been outlined, in more or less detail. Hospitalization is recommended for all cases. It is difficult to foretell whether a mild or a severe case of thrombophlebitis may develop into pulmonary infarction or fatal pulmonary embolism. Furthermore, the advisability of intensive care of early cases is the best preventive measure against the development of the post-thrombotic syndrome. Supervision should be continued after discharge from the hospital. The regime outlined has given the most satisfactory results in the author's experience.
