A 54-year-old woman presented with a palpable stringlike lesion on her right breast for the past week. Her medical history was unremarkable for any disease. On physical examination, a tubular lesion was detected on the lower inner quadrant of the right breast tracing through the upper right quadrant of the abdomen, with discomfort on palpation.

Ultrasonographic evaluation revealed dilated venous structures with intraluminal echogenic thrombus (Figure 1) and lack of flow on color Doppler in these tubular structures. On mammographic examination, long linear densities were found in the lower inner quadrant of the right breast (Figure 2).
