One case of acute ilio-femoral thrombosis in an infant girl appearing eight days after birth has been presented. The clinical picture together with venography established the diagnosis. We were not able to find the pathogenesis of the acute venous occlusion in our patient. Reviewing the literature on the subject we didn't find any similar report at such an early age. The child is now four years old and has no clinical signs of thrombophlebitis.
