INTRODUCTION: Paget-Schroetter syndrome (PSS), also known as effort thrombosis, is a rare syndrome of subclavian-axillary vein deep venous thrombosis (DVT) typically occurring in younger men after heavy upper extremity exertion. Anatomic abnormalities resulting in thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) are commonly seen. We present a case of PSS in a young wrestler who was later found to have Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma (DBCL) 2 months later.
