Abstract

Nephrotic syndrome is comprised of massive proteinuria in association with hypoalbuminemia, hyperlipidemia, and edema. Thromboembolism is an important source of morbidity and mortality in nephrotic syndrome and virtually any location may be affected. This review focuses on the epidemiology, pathophysiology, clinical features, and diagnosis of thromboembolism in pediatric nephrotic syndrome.

Keywords: Thromboembolism, thrombus, nephrotic syndrome, pediatrics.
