Abstract


Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is the most common genetic cause of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The most common cause of death in patients with this condition is cardiovascular disease, mainly due to hypertension and its consequences. We report a case of a 42-year-old male patient with polycystic kidney disease who developed a giant thrombus entrapped by a patent foramen ovale after an acute myocardial infarction.
