  8. We recently had a newborn referred with hepatic vein thrombosis. Baby had blood and mucoid stools. The total count was high and hence blood c&s sent and commenced with i v antibiotics.symptoms abated. no organism grown in culture. We were hesitant to start LMW heparin because of diverse opinions.But continued with iv antibiotics. Rpt ultrsound showed developing collaterals. What is the probability that the child will /will not have chronic liver disease. Can LMW Heparin melt away the thrombosis? thanks selvan rathinasamy
