[Henri Mondor, Fr. physician, 1885–1962]
Thrombosis, sclerosis, or phlebitis of a subcutaneous vein or veins in the breast or chest wall sometimes extending from the axilla to the epigastrium. It may occur after trauma or appear without apparent cause. Although a benign, self-limiting disease, its appearance may be confused with breast cancer.
