Abstract

Pulmonary artery thrombus is a rarely reported complication in premature neonates. The management of life-threatening thrombotic events in neonates is controversial, especially regarding the use of thrombolytics versus anticoagulation alone for treatment. We report a case of a premature neonate with symptomatic pulmonary artery thrombus treated with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator who survived without bleeding complications.
