Summary A case of upper limb venous thrombosis in a patient with nephrotic syndrome secondary to amyloidosis is described. Although
thrombosis of both venous and arterial systems is a recognised complication of the nephrotic syndrome, the site reported is
rare. There is no evidence that amyloidosis in the absence of nephrotic syndrome is associated with an increased clotting
tendency; haemorrhage appears more likely.
