What causes a large blood clot in deep jagular while suffering from histiocytosis?

I am currently at Children s Hospital with my 17 yr old son. He has Histiocytosis and takes Vinblastine weekly. It s on his pituitary stalk, his thyroid and in in his lungs. Now we are inpatient because he has a large blood clot in his deep jugular, and today they located a small clot in his lower right lobe of his lung. The staff here are wonderful but, I m reading up on these issues and quite frankly, I m terrified. What is the prognosis for this? He has also been suffering with numerous other symptoms that just recently started.

Hello,

The fact they he has blood clots in more than on place than it gives us an information that probably he has defects in coagulation cascade. Please talk with his doctor for this to order the trombophylic panel blood tests.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
