Abstract Renal vein thrombosis can occur as a complication of nephrotic syndrome. We present the case of a young man with nephrotic syndrome caused by minimal change disease who developed acute inferior vena cava and left renal vein thrombosis. He was treated initially with intravenous heparin. Because of the persistence of severe left flank pain and gross hematuria, local infusion of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator was tried, with resolution of thrombi and subsidence of symptoms. Functional preservation of the involved kidney is good, as indicated by Tc-99m DMSA scan (involved kidney, 47.4\%; uninvolved kidney, 52.6\%). Anticoagulation is usually recommended as the treatment of choice in renal vein thrombosis. We believe that in cases with critical presentations, such as bilateral involvement, extension into inferior vena cava, acute renal failure, pulmonary embolism or severe flank pain, thrombolytic therapy should be considered as a second-line treatment if good response is not obtained with heparin.
