Herein we report a sixteen-year-old female that developed deep vein thrombosis (DVT) while undergoing treatment for H1N1 pneumonia. To the best of our knowledge this is the first report of H1N1/09 infection complicated by DVT in an adolescent patient with no detected risk factors other than immobilization. Healthcare providers should be aware of the possibility of thrombosis in patients with swine-origin influenza, especially in those with additional risk factors.
