Renal vein thrombosis
Renal vein thrombosis has many causes, including nephrotic syndrome, hypercoagulable disorders, malignancy, compression from a retroperitoneal mass, trauma, or complication of a renal transplant. In children, it is often secondary to dehydration or sepsis.
Renal vein thrombosis can be unilateral or bilateral. If unilateral, thrombosis more commonly occurs on the left side. Renal vein thrombosis is typically treated with anticoagulation.
