ABSTRACT
Thromboemolism is one of the severe complications of nephrotic syndrome. And arterial thromboembolism is rare than venous thromboembolism. Hypercoagulability is the main pathophysiologic factors of thromboembolism in nephrotic syndrome with severe hypoalbuminemia. We experienced one case of arterial thromboembolism which occured in right common iliac artery. It was seen in a 6 year-old male child that presented with generalized edema and rigth ankle joint pain. Emergency embolectomy and anticoagulant therapy (heparin and antithrombin III) was performed. He didn't have to be amputated and recovered to self ambulation. This is an uncommon case that successful recovery was possible by early diagnosis and invasive surgical management with proper anticoagulant therapy.
Key words: Minimal change nephrotic syndrome | Thromboembolism | Right common iliac artery
