- Includes septic (infected) thromboembolism of any vein
- Superficial vein thrombosis (SVT) is a type of venous thrombosis, or a blood clot in a vein, which forms in a superficial vein (as opposed to a deep vein) near the surface of the body. Usually there is an inflammatory reaction around the vein which presents as a painful induration with erythema. SVT has a limited clinical significance (in terms of morbidity and mortality) when compared to a Deep venous thrombosis/thrombophlebitis, leg (DVT), which occurs deeper in the body, at the deep venous system level.
