ORTS COSTA, J. A. et al. Hyperthrombophilia status in a patient without thrombotic events. An. Med. Interna (Madrid) [online]. 2005, vol.22, n.10, pp.481-484. ISSN 0212-7199.
Some case reports have been published in the literature about thrombosis associated with several risk factors, specially in hypercoagulability state. Nevertheless, we have not found any description of a case like this of hyperthrombophilia status without thrombotic events. We present a 75 years old woman who was assessed for thrombophilia state on occasion of a deep venous thrombosis which affected to her daughter. Many thrombosis risk factors were detected (13 altogether), both inherited and acquired, arterial and venous, that surprisingly, have not led to any thrombosis event. Its description led us to highlight the risk factors of this patient and to open questions about the present knowledge on etiology and etiopathogenesis of thrombotic phenomena.
