ABSTRACT
We described a benign syndrome due to a rupture of the calf vein and accompanied by a severe localized pain, (as if the patient had received a hit from a stone at his leg), with swelling, firmness, tenderness and subcutaneous ecchymoses. It is often misdiagnosed as a venous or arterial thrombosis and thus falsely treated. It is advisable in such cases to observe the local alterations of the skin changes.

    Venous thrombosis in childhood is an extremely rare condition. The etiologic factors in childhood are different than in the adult. Generalized infection seems to play the main etiologic role, and for this reason antibiotic treatment is usually necessary. Anticoagulant treatment is mandatory;...

    The use of a single crutch with weight bearing and pressure on the axilla is presented as a cause of thrombotic occlusion of the axillary artery in two cases. Detachment of the intima was present in both cases. Resection of the torn intima and fixation of its distal edges in one case and...
