A 4 day old male neonate with severe dehydration, uremia, and hyperbilirubinemia presented with bilateral renal vein thrombosis. Following exchange transfusion and peritoneal dialysis renal function returned to normal without nephrectomy. The importance of adequate and prompt management of renal failure to expect the spontaneous recanalization is stressed. Because of the high mortality rate associated with the nephrectomy in neonates, adequate and prompt medical management including peritoneal dialysis or exchange transfusion, if indicated, with expectation of spontaneous recovery is considered the treatment of choice in this age group.
Key Words: renal vein thrombosis, peritoneal dialysis
