Özet

Pediatric thrombosis is multifactorial, and usually risk factors either congenital or acquired are present. After 2000, systematic reviews and meta-analysis on pediatric venous thromboembolic disease and inherited thrombophilia revealed elevated thrombotic risks in these children. In this review, we discuss thrombosis and new literature in various pediatric patient groups and the usefulness of thrombophilia testing.
