Inferior vena cava (IVC) anomalies will remain silent until collateralized venous drainage has been lost. The initial signs can be subtle, including back pain, and are often missed initially until progressive changes toward motor weakness, phlegmasia cerulea dolens, and/or renal impairment have occurred. We have presented a case of acute occlusion of an atretic IVC and infrarenal collateral drainage in an adolescent patient, who had been treated with successful thrombolysis, thrombectomy, and endovascular revascularization for IVC stenting and reconstruction.
