Interrupted inferior vena cava is a rare, but underdiagnosed congenital anomaly. Commonly it presents with bilateral deep vein thrombosis in teenagers and young adults. Lifelong anticoagulation treatment is mandatory. We describe three cases of teenagers with interrupted inferior vena cava, who presented with collapse, back pain and deep vein thrombosis.
