Splenic vein thrombosis resulting in acute anemia: an unusual manifestation of nephrotic syndrome in a Chinese shar pei with reactive amyloidosis. Academic Article uri icon


  • Nephrotic syndrome in a seven-year-old Chinese shar pei resulted in oliguric renal failure, coagulopathy, and acute anemia. Renal amyloidosis and widespread thromboses were diagnosed postmortem. Splenic vein thrombosis caused significant splenic congestion, coagulative necrosis, and acute anemia. Splenic vein thrombosis is reported here as an unusual consequence of nephrotic syndrome in the dog.
