A case of bilateral iliofemoral thrombosis in a 17-year-old [male] patient is presented. It was only revealed during bilateral transfemoral thrombectomy that the thrombosis was due to previous inferior vena cava occlusion. This required a complex interventional reconstruction of the vena cava with secondary stenting of both renal veins. The postoperative venogram showed blood outflow from the left renal vein into the portal vein and from the right renal vein into the inferior vena cava via collaterals. At follow-up presentation, the patient was asymptomatic with normal findings on computed tomography scanning.
