Ultrasound Case Reviews

We present a case of a child who presented with neck swelling and was ultimately diagnosed with lymphoma after an internal jugular vein thrombosis was discovered by point-of-care ultrasound. The use of point-of-care ultrasound enabled thrombus detection, which prompted further evaluation and treatment.
