Abstract: This article presents a unique case study highlighting an unusual manifestation of Essential Thrombocythemia ET where axillary vein thrombosis serves as the presenting feature. Although thrombotic complications are commonly associated with ET, axillary vein thrombosis remains a seldom reported occurrence within ET diagnoses. The case involves a 70 - year - old male with a history of multiple medical conditions who exhibited symptoms of upper limb pain and swelling. Through comprehensive diagnostic procedures, including genetic studies, bone marrow aspiration, and imaging, ET was confirmed as the underlying cause. The article delves into the complexity of essential thrombocythemia, discussing its molecular pathogenesis, diagnostic challenges, and management strategies. The presented case underscores the importance of recognizing atypical presentations and utilizing a multidisciplinary approach for accurate diagnosis and effective disease management.
