Dear Manjiri,

It is difficult to understand exactly what is going on here.  As best as I can interpret, your son had a clot that was noted in the left ventricle of his heart and his right femoral artery one week after an illness with fever—I hope that this is a correct interpretation of what you are saying.  If this is correct, I find it hard to understand how his blood tests are normal.  I am mostly concerned that he may have an abnormality of control of his ability to clot.  However, if his heart is structurally normal, you may be better served discussing this on a pediatric hematology expert forum.
