Superior vena cava (SVC) syndrome is caused by compressive effects of intrathoracic lesions on SVC and subsequent occlusion in venous drainage of head, neck, arms and upper part of chest. SVC syndrome causes different signs depending on the intensity of involvement. Here, we report a 54-year-old man with SVC syndrome due to calcified lymphadenitis, which is one of the rare causes of this syndrome.
