The tendency to form thromboses (blood clots in arteries and veins).
Inflammation of a vein that occurs when a blood clot forms.
Deep Vein Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism.
- Thrombosis, cavernous sinus
A blood clot within the cavernous sinus. A thrombosis in this key crossroads causes cavernous sinus syndrome.

Blood clotting in the veins of the inner thigh or leg.

Some deep vein thrombosis are associated with familial syndromes. Blood clots can break off […]
- Thrombotic disease due to protein C deficiency
Protein C is a protein in plasma that enters into the cascade of biochemical events leading to the formation of a clot. Deficiency of protein C results in thrombotic (clotting) disease and excess platelets with recurrent thrombophlebitis (inflammation of the vein that occurs when a clot forms). The clot can break loose and travel through […]
