Venous thromboembolism is a very common complication of nephrotic syndrome (NS). This case report concerns a 19-year-old male, who had known NS and was admitted two times in a short period, first presenting with recurrent symptoms of NS and later with an acute abdomen, which was diagnosed as renal venous thrombosis (RVT) and pulmonary thromboembolism. The patient was treated with prednisolone and therapeutic doses of dalteparin and warfarin. Venous thrombosis, particularly RVT and pulmonary thromboembolism, should be considered in patients with NS.
