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.
