AIM The G20210A mutation of the prothrombin gene is a genetic risk factor for venous thromboembolism (VTE). Variability exists in the mutation prevalence in both normal individuals and VTE patients. The aim of this study was to determine the mutation prevalence in Northwestern Greece and evaluate its association with VTE. METHODS Presence of the G20210A… (More)
We describe the case of a previously well 19-month-old boy who presented with an acute Epstein-Barr virus infection and a prolonged activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) associated with the presence of a transient lupus anticoagulant (LA). The boy had an excellent outcome, with gradual normalization of the APTT and disappearance of the LA.
We present the case of a 32-year-old man suffering from recurrent episodes of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). He was heterozygous for the G1691A mutation in the Factor V gene. His father was heterozygous for the same mutation and had a unique episode of DVT after a fracture of the tibia. Genetic predisposition significantly influences the prevalence of… (More)
