Unilateral breast edema is caused by a variety of conditions, and rare cause of unilateral breast edema is central vein stenosis in the patient with hemodialysis. In the patient with hemodialysis, subclavian or innominate vein stenosis can rarely cause unilateral breast edema, but the stenosis of junction between superior vena cava (SVC) and right atrium (RA) is very rarely reported. Here we report the pin-point stenosis of junction between SVC and RA presenting as right breast edema in the patient with end-stage renal disease with hemodialysis.
