Deep vein thrombosis, renal vein thrombosis, and cerebral venous sinus thrombosis in children are frequently described complications of nephrotic syndrome (NS). Early diagnosis and treatment with anticoagulants is the key for a good outcome. There are a few reported cases of portal vein and superior mesenteric thrombosis in adults in association with NS. Here, we describe two cases of portal vein thrombosis with variable extent of involvement of superior mesenteric vein in association with relapse of NS. A high degree of suspicion, ultrasonography of the abdomen along with Doppler study of abdominal vessels, and computed tomography angiography can only pick up such unusual sites of thrombosis and facilitate early management.
