Factor V Leiden mutation in Turkish patients with homozygous cystathionine β-synthase deficiency


Venous and arterial thromboembolism can occur in patients with homocystinuria. Resistance to activated protein C, which is caused by a single point mutation in the gene for factor V, renders an individual at risk for thrombosis. It has been suggested that coexistence of hereditary homocystinuria and factor V Leiden mutation might jointly play a role in the… (More)
