The association between nephrotic syndrome and intravascular coagulation has been known for more than a century, but it was not until 1948 that a thrombotic diathesis in nephrotic patients was proposed. The prevalence of thrmbo-embolic complications is much higher in adult patients. Deep vein thrombosis of the leg is the most common complications in nephrotic adult and was responsible for one-third of the thrombo-embolic complications of nephrotic children. Arterial thrombosis occurs less frequently and is seen primarily in childern. We present a case of acute anterior myocardial infarction in a young man with nephrotic syndrome, secondary to minimal change glomerulonephritis, in which thrombosis of the proximal left anterior descanding artery was the actual cause of acute myocardial infarction.
