Lower limbs superficial venous thrombosis (SVT) is a relatively frequent disease. Its prevalence among patients consulting their treating physician is estimated to be 10.8% among women and 4.9% among men. Up to 25% of at risk patients with isolated SVT present with a concomitant DVT. Ultrasound imaging may play a role in the management of these patients allowing precise diagnosis, determination of thrombus extension and presence of associated DVT. From data recently appeared in the literature treatment of SVT with prophylactic doses of fondaparinux may be proposed to at risk patients with isolated SVT.
