Case report: Conservative treatment of renal laceration in a patient with von Willebrand's disease

Durwood Neal, Omar Hayek


We report a case of blunt renal trauma to a pediatric patient with von Willebrand's disease. The patient was successfully treated via conservative management. Currently, there is no specific guideline regarding the treatment of blunt renal trauma in pediatric patients with clotting disorders, but our case suggests that conservative treatment remains the gold standard.
