Neonatal renal vein thombosis and elevated maternal lipoprotein: our most accessed case report

dopplerWith over 800 downloads since publication, ‘Elevated maternal lipoprotein (a) and neonatal renal vein thrombosis: a case report‘ becomes our most accessed case report this month. Subbiah and Parimi report on a full-term neonate with renal vein thrombosis (RNV) and her mother, with full clinical details and accompanying Doppler scan imaging. Although RNV is well-reported in neonates, this case report is one of the few to describe it in relation to inherited prothrombotic risk factors. The association between maternal thrombophilia and neonatal thrombotic complications is still unknown.

The image above shows a renal Doppler flow study demonstrating an increased resistive index of the right renal artery with suboptimal wave forms of the right renal vein. You can read the full case report including downloadable images and details of the patient’s follow-up here.
