COVID-19 Era: Mondor’s disease and Rembrandt. What ties?

Abstract

The recent and increased number of scientific reports on venous thrombosis and venous thromboembolism induced by corona- virus, suggests to improve our level of attention because thrombophlebitis could be a clinical manifestation of COVID-19. We need to be aware also of rare varieties of venous thrombosis such as Mondor disease. The comparison between the enigmatic breast discoloration of the Bathsheba painted by Rembrandt and a case of Mondor disease observed in 2020, becomes a cultural game to improve our clinical skills in diagnosing Mondor thrombophlebitis.
