Case description

In this video, there is a swelling located at the lower part of right side of neck near the sternomastoid attachment and made more obvious seen during acts of swallowing and upon Valsalva manouevre. This is a classical sign of phlebectasia of the internal jugular vein which is a fusiform dilatation of the internal jugular vein. Ultrasound with colour dopler confirms the vascular origin and nature of this swelling.
