Abstract

Deep venous thrombosis is mostly associated with an underlying risk factor such as venous catheter, infectious diseases, hereditary thrombophilia and metabolic diseases. Cancer is one of the most common primary disorders in pediatric venous thrombosis, accounting for one-fifth of children with thrombotic events. Here we report a 13-year-old female patient who is diagnosed as deep vein thrombosis due to acute myeloid leukemia.
