Introduction: Children suffering from nephrotic syndrome have an increased risk of arterial and venous thrombosis, depending on their location and extent, they can be life-threatening.
Objective: To describe a clinical case of complicated nephrotic syndrome with venous thrombosis.
Description: 5-year-old boy diagnosed with minimal nephrotic syndrome diagnosed by renal biopsy presenting at 10 days consulta for pain and erythema on the right side of the neck of 24 hours of evolution. Diagnosis: deep vein thrombosis in confluent yugulo right subclavian. It was performed or inter consultation with hematology and initiation or anticoagulation. At the 3rd month of the anticoagulant treatment, Doppler echo was performed with a control of the blood, which was normal.
Conclusion: Thrombotic complications, although they are usually rare in pediatric patients with nephrotic syndrome (approx. 20%), should be diagnosed early through the clinic, imaging studies and laboratory with dosage of antithrombin III, platelet count and fibrinogen, avoiding major complications. Prophylaxis with anticoagulants is discussed, it is of great importance to balance risks and benefits of this.
