We report a case of axillary vein thrombosis in a 45-year-old-man, sustained after fall of heavy object over the right upper limb. Three days later, a diagnosis of right distal axillary vein thrombosis was made. Patient was given subcutaneous low molecular weight heparin followed by oral warfarin. His symptoms disappeared after 3 months of treatment. It is important to be aware of this unusual but potentially serious complication, as early diagnosis and treatment may limit morbidity and mortality.
