Injury of the dorsal vein of the foot is usually caused by direct trauma, such as a cut, laceration, or crush injury. It can also be caused by a deep puncture wound, or even a snake bite.


The diagnosis of injury of the dorsal vein of the foot is usually made based on the patient’s history and physical examination. The area may be tender and swollen and discoloration may be present. Imaging such as an X-ray or ultrasound may also be used to confirm the diagnosis.

Differential diagnosis

Other causes of injury to the dorsal vein of the foot include deep vein thrombosis, arterial occlusion, and infection.


The treatment for injury of the dorsal vein of the foot depends on the severity of the injury. For minor injuries, rest and elevation of the foot may be sufficient. For more severe injuries, surgery may be necessary to repair the damaged vein.


The prognosis for injury of the dorsal vein of the foot is generally good. If the injury is minor, the patient should make a full recovery with no long-term effects. However, if the injury is more severe, there may be some complications that require further treatment.
