We report a case of bilateral renal vein thrombosis in a neonate, and reviewed available literature. The neonate was a macrosomic male born to a mother with glycosuria in pregnancy. There was delay in commencing breasttfeeding for up to 36 hours due to lack of lactation by themother. Clinical and laboratory examination showed enlarged palpable kidneys and azotemia. Diagnosis of bilateral renal vein thrombosis was confirmed by renal ultrasonography. The child is being managed conservatively. Measures aimed at prevention of the disease because of its poor outcome were highlighted.
