Primary varicose veins are a common affliction of the extremities, whereas the whole body including the genitals are very rarely affected, for reasons not clearly understood. The literature has little references in regards to the number of cases and management these type varicose veins. Treatment of the upper and lower extremities is the ligation and stripping of the varicose veins but what we can done for chest, abdomen, back, and genital varicose veins, is a query. Here we present a case of a 20-year-old male with this unusual condition of primary varicose veins of the whole body with genitals. Diagnosis in our case was made by means of physical examination and venography. The patient was treated surgically by ligation and stripping of the varicose vein from the upper and lower extremities with excellent functional and cosmetic outcome, but left the chest, abdomen, back, and genital veins for laser or other methods, and the patient was referred to higher center for that treatment.
