Two-thirds of the cases are sporadic and result from new mutations. The aim of this study was to determine TSC2 gene mutations by Single Stranded Conformation(More)
Neurologic symptoms associated with antiphospholipid antibodies in children include thrombotic events, unilateral movement disorders, or migraine. We present a 7-year-old girl with bilateral optic neuropathy, cerebral white-matter lesions, and antiphospholipid IgM that responded to prednisone and tended to relapse when it was stopped.

Protein C, a vitamin K-dependent potent anticoagulant, is synthesized in the liver. Hereditary resistance to activated protein C is a condition that increases the risk of thrombosis as a result of mutation in factor V gene (factor V Leiden). It is generally accepted to be associated with venous thrombosis. We present a patient who was given antibiotics via(More)
