Medical Care

Treatment is entirely symptomatic. Hot, wet dressings and anodynes may be used for pain relief. The use of modalities such as enzymes, corticosteroids, antibiotics, vaccines, and anticoagulants has been studied, although none has been proven to hasten the resolution of the pathologic process. The major benefit that the physician can provide is reassurance.


Surgical Care

Treatment is symptomatic because, to date, the disease has proved to be benign and self-limited.


Long-Term Monitoring

The natural course of Mondor disease is 3 weeks to 6 months. Reassurance during follow-up outpatient visits is most beneficial.
