Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) of upper limb is an unusual phenomenon not being encountered frequently and hence there is often a delay in diagnosis unfortunate enough increasing the morbidity and mortality of this condition. Unexplained swelling of the upper limb in a healthy adult male/female and any predisposing factors from the patient’s history should alert the emergency room doctors for hospital admission and further investigations to confirm or rule out DVT before it is too late.
