Phlebectasia of Internal Jugular Vein- A Rare Differential Case of Neck Swelling With Review of Literature
Message:
Abstract:
Introduction
Internal jugular vein ectasia is a condition in which there is a dilatation of the internal jugular vein. A patient usually presents in the first decade with swelling in the neck, which aggravates in size while straining or coughing. This is a very rare condition and the chances of misdiagnosis are quite high. It is diagnosed by proper history taking, examination, and radiological study.   Case Report: We reported the case of a seven-year-old female presenting with right-sided swelling in the neck aggravating in size while straining or coughing. Regular follow-up was advised. Swelling regression was observed after one year of follow-up without any surgical treatment.  
Conclusion
This is a self-limiting condition and usually the treatment is not warranted. Regular follow-up is advised for the patient.
