ABSTRACT
Venous thrombosis in childhood is an extremely rare condition. The etiologic factors in childhood are different than in the adult. Generalized infection seems to play the main etiologic role, and for this reason antibiotic treatment is usually necessary. Anticoagulant treatment is mandatory; however its application presents many difficulties. The administration of calcium-heparin subcutaneously for a long time is feasible, well-controlled, without side effects and highly effective. The authors therefore strongly recommended this anticoagulant treatment in childhood.
