Thrombosis in newborns is an infrequent pathology which is mainly associated with a central venous catheter. Its clinical presentation may be that of an asymptomatic newborn or with variable symptoms, depending on the location and size of the thrombosis. The diagnosis is generally made with Doppler ultrasound and specific examinations depending on the clinical presentation. Regarding management, currently there is not much evidence in newborns, but thrombolytics / fibrinolytics are usually used extrapolating from adult investigations. This review details epidemiology, pathophysiology, risk factors, clinical presentations, diagnosis and treatment. There is a lack of studies on national epidemiology and treatment in newborns, the need for these arises.
