Subclavian artery thrombosis is a relatively rare and unheard complication postmodified radical mastectomy (MRM) surgery and it is still not reported in the literature. We report a case of a 55-year-old female who underwent MRM for Stage II left ductal carcinoma of breast with level 2 lymph node involvement in a private hospital. She developed ischemic pain in the left upper limb on postoperative day 3. She came to JNMCH and was referred to us and initial imaging with computed tomography angiography revealed occlusion from the origin of the subclavian to axillary artery. We discuss the management of the aforementioned condition in our setup and would also discuss the steps needed to avoid the same in the future.
