The clinical, enzymatic, and genetic data were(More)
We report a renal artery thrombosis in a 42-year-old man. Fasting homocysteinemia was at 23 micromol/l 3 months later and at 33 pmol/l 5 months after the vascular event. A homozygous C677T MTHFR was found with low folate status. Active smoking may also have contributed to the pathogenesis of renal arterial thrombosis. The other causes of thrombophilia were(More)
