[Point mutation G-->A nucleotide 1691 factor V gene as a cause of developing thrombotic complications in a family with plasma resistance to activated protein C].

Abstract

The presence of point mutation G-->A of nucleotide 1691 of Factor V gene (Leiden mutation) is responsible for the resistance of factor Va to activated protein C (APC-resistance) and is associated with an increased risk for thrombosis. Herein, we reported on a case of 20 year male with a two years history of recurrent, extensive deep vein thrombosis. His… (More)
