In order to investigate the influence of genetic factors in childhood stroke, we compared the distributions of mutations/ polymorphisms affecting hemostasis and/or endothelial function (factor V [FV] Leiden, factor II [FII] G20210A, methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase [MTHFR] C677T, angiotensin-converting enzyme [ACE] insertion/deletion [ID], and(More)
Myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) is an autosomal dominant inheritable disease associated with an expansion of CTG repeats in the 3' UTR of the DMPK gene. The subject is an 11-year-old girl with atypical myopathy. Because the proband's family has a positive DM1 history, a molecular-genetic analysis for DM1 was performed. This study showed that proband had a(More)
Genetic and acquired disorders that foster a procoagulable state represent risk factors for stroke in childhood. Although an increased incidence of thromboembolic complications has been reported in patients with thalassemia, severe cerebral thromboembolism has rarely been observed in patients with beta-thalassemia minor. This article describes a case study(More)
