Abstract

Nutcracker syndrome is defined as a compression of left renal vein leading to symptomatic hematuria and flank pain. There are very few reports about its association with May-Thurner syndrome that is related to compression of left iliac vein causing severe leg edema. We are reporting a rare case of a patient having both conditions successfully treated with sequential percutaneous interventions. This case and treatment options are discussed in detail.
