Palmar digital vein thrombosis causing one or more nodules seems to be a relatively rare condition, judging by the dearth of reports in the literature. It should always be considered in a patient who presents with a painful, firm, blue nodule located at or in close proximity to one of the flexion crease of the finger. Common lesions presenting as one or more solid digital nodules are ganglions, epidermal inclusion cysts, giant cell tumors, and lipomas. Thrombosis of the palmar digital veins should, however, be part of the differential diagnosis of palmar digital nodules because it is possible to manage it conservatively. We report two cases of thrombosis of palmar digital vein in a 33-year-old woman and a 78-year-old man.
