The purpose of this paper was to point out the difficulties in arriving at an early diagnosis of thrombophlebitis. It was stressed that no laboratory tests or x-ray procedure or isotope study could lead to this diagnosis and that only by clinical examination may a diagnosis be arrived at. With this in mind, the literature was reviewed to collect all the reported clinical tests which may facilitate a diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis.
