INTRODUCTION: Thromboses of the upper extremity and neck are rare and not as common as lower extremity DVTs. Internal jugular vein thrombosis (IJVT) is a serious event with a potentially fatal outcome. IJVT is most frequently associated to central venous catheterization and IV drug use. Other etiologies, such as hypercoagulability and occult or known malignancy, are not well described in the literature.
