  • Mesenteric artery thrombosis: A case report of combined protein S and protein C deficiency AMERICAN JOURNAL OF HEMATOLOGY Atkins, K. A., Zehnder, J. L. 1998; 58 (3): 246-247


    Individuals with more than one defect in natural coagulant/anticoagulant systems have been postulated to be at an increased risk for thrombotic events. We report a case of combined protein S and C deficiency in a young woman, which resulted in fatal arterial mesenteric thrombosis. The role of coagulation defects in arterial thrombosis is discussed.
