Thrombophilia, hereditary, due to protein c deficiency, autosomal dominant

Common Name(s)

Thrombophilia, hereditary, due to protein c deficiency, autosomal dominant

Heterozygous protein C deficiency is characterized by recurrent venous thrombosis. However, many adults with heterozygous disease may be asymptomatic ({23:Millar et al., 2000}). Individuals with decreased amounts of protein C are classically referred to as having type I deficiency and those with normal amounts of a functionally defective protein as having type II deficiency ({4:Bertina et al., 1984}). Acquired protein C deficiency is a clinically similar disorder caused by development of an antibody against protein C. {8:Clouse and Comp (1986)} reviewed the structural and functional properties of protein C and discussed both hereditary and acquired deficiency of protein C.
