Palmar digital vein thrombosis bring about one or an ext nodules appears to it is in a relatively rare condition, evaluate by the dearth that reports in the literature. It should constantly be thought about in a patient that presents with a painful, firm, blue nodule situated at or in nearby proximity to among the flexion wrinkle of the finger. Common lesions presenting as one or much more solid digital nodules space ganglions, epidermal consist of cysts, large cell tumors, and also lipomas. Thrombosis of the palmar digital veins should, however, be part of the differential diagnosis of palmar digital nodules because it is feasible to regulate it conservatively. We report two instances of thrombosis of palmar digital vein in a 33-year-old woman and also a 78-year-old man.


INTRODUCTION

In 1936, Jadassohn1 explained "thrombosis that the digital vein, manifesting together painful, firm, blue nodule that palmar aspect. The patience is typically female, from a broad spectrum, but most often between 35 and also 65 years old." typical lesions presenting together one or much more solid digital nodules room ganglions, epidermal inclusion cyst, gigantic cell tumors, and lipomas2. Thrombosis of palmar digital vein should, however, be component of the differential diagnosis the palmar digital nodules due to the fact that it is feasible to control it conservatively3. Thrombosis that palmar digital vein is very rare, so us report two cases of that in a 33-year-old woman and a 78-year-old man.
