Abstract
Nephrotic syndrome is known to be associated with a hypercoagulable state and thromboembolic complications. The pathogenic mechanisms are unclear yet, however, various alterations in coagulant and anti-coagulant factors may be responsible. Venous thromboembolic complications have been widely reported, but arterial thrombosis is relatively rare. We discribe a 4-year-old boy who was presented with acute cerebral infarction and was found to have a hypercoagulable state due to nephrotic syndrome.
Key Words: Cerebral infarction, Hypercoagulable state, Nephrotic syndrome
