Abstract

Breast complications are not very common during pregnancy and puerperium. Mondor\'s disease of the breast is a rare benign breast condition.1 It is an inflammation of the superficial veins in the anterior chest wall and breasts. It is caused by blood clotting in these veins.2 Mondor\'s disease is a very rare condition. It usually occurs in individuals who are between 30 and 60 years of age.3 The incidence of mastitis is 2–5% in lactating women. The common organisms involved are Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis and Viridans streptococci. Risk factors for mastitis are poor nursing, maternal fatigue and cracked nipple.4 Greater veins are affected by thrombophlebitis. It can advance into the deep venous system. It leads to pulmonary embolism.5
