S. H. Mousavi Bahar

Abstract


Renal vein thrombosis (RVT) is the most frequent vascular abnormality in newborns,

Surgical thrombectomy is not a rational approach and the treatment of choice is conservative management and thrombolytic therapy. We present a 45 years old male patient with chronic renal vein thrombosis who was treated with thrombolytic therapy successfully.
