Deep vein thrombosis represents 0.05% of hospitalizations in pediatrics, with a similar predilection between male and female; and higher incidence in newborns and adolescents. We present the case of a 1 6-year-old female patient, treated at the Fourth Level Clinic, Colombia, with a history of pain in the left lower limb of five days of evolution, located in the thigh and radiated to the entire leg, with increased volume and paresthesias, making it impossible for her to ambulate. The performance of a venous Doppler ultrasound of the left lower limb revealed: common, superficial, deep femoral veins and popliteal vein with absence of compressibility, dilated, with presence of heterogeneous echogenic material inside and without flow to the Doppler study, image that corresponds to thrombus that extends from the proximal end to the middle end of the leg, the study confirmed deep vein thrombosis. Assessed by vascular surgery who considers has indication of thromboaspiration protocol both pulmonary and lower limbs by phlebography of lower limb, cavograph filter vena cava, thoracic phlebography (pulmonary) thrombo aspiration - thromboembolectomy of abdominal vessels, pulmonary vessels and vessels of the lower left limbs which is performed without complications. It progressed satisfactorily and treatment was continued on an outpatient basis. This case aims to generate scientific knowledge in health personnel who work with children and adolescents to guide them not to automatically rule out deep vein thrombosis in pediatric patients as a differential diagnosis and thus provide adequate and early treatment avoiding complications that could become fatal.
