Superior Vena Cava (SVC) thrombus is a condition requiring immediate diagnosis and treatment. SVC thrombus obstructs blood flow through the SVC, resulting in a severe decrease in venous return from the head, neck, and upper extremity to the heart. We hereby present a case of SVC syndrome secondary to SVC thrombus in the emergency department of PT Birtacity Hospital with facial swelling, shortness of breath, neck distension, and enlarged veins of the upper chest, which developed for five weeks in a 57-year-old lady. A computed tomography scan of the chest revealed a bronchogenic tumor, slight enlargement of a superior conglomerate mediastinal lymphadenopathy, and intramural thrombus of the SVC.
