Abstract

Reported here is a 22-year-old professional wrestler who was diagnosed to have Paget-Schroetter syndrome after Greco-Roman wrestling. On substantial neuromuscular examination and laboratory testing, he was found to have also thoracic outlet syndrome and heterozygous mutations for factor V Leiden and methyltetrahydrofolate reductase genes. To the best knowledge of the authors, the concomitance of these pathologies is discussed for the first time in the literature.
