Abstract

Jugular phlebectasia is a dilation of the vein. It is observed clinically as a soft, bulky tumour in the neck, with no pain. Rarely seen in adults, there are only a few cases described in the literature. We report a 72-year-old patient who reported a painful cervical mass. Extensive studies led to the diagnosis of phlebectasia of the external jugular vein with partial thrombosis. The elective treatment is conservative, but considering the possibility of rupture or thromboembolic complication, we performed surgical exeresis of the lesion.

Resumen

La flebectasia yugular es una dilatación de la vena. Aparece en el cuello como una masa blanda no dolorosa. Excepcional en los adultos, con muy pocos casos descritos en la literatura mundial. Presentamos a una paciente de 72 años con una tumoración cervical dolorosa que resultó ser una flebectasia de la vena yugular externa derecha con trombosis parcial. El tratamiento es conservador, pero dada la clínica de la paciente y la posibilida de rotura o complicación tromboembólica se realizó su exéresis quirúrgica.
