Caption: Superficial thrombophlebitis in the leg of an 87 year old male patient. Thrombophlebitis is the inflammation of a vein with blood clot (thrombus) formation. Superficial refers to veins near the surface of the skin. The affected veins are tender to the touch. The condition can arise spontaneously, or as a complication of varicose veins or surgery. It usually subsides by itself but anti-inflammatory drugs may be taken to relieve pain.
