Penile Mondor’s Disease (PMD), thrombophlebitis of the superficial dorsal vein of the penis is a rare, self-limiting, benign process having acute presentation with pain and induration of the dorsal part of the penis. Exact etiology of the disease is not known but prolonged sexual intercourse has been stated as the most common cause in the literature. A simple physical examination is sufficient for diagnosis but color doppler ultrasonography is often carried out as a further investigation. Proper diagnosis and consequent conservative treatment with reassurance can help the patients to relieve their anxiety. We describe the symptoms, the sonographic findings and treatment of a 29-year-old male with superficial thrombophlebitis of the penis dorsal vein.
