Abstract
Pulmonary embolism is a common clinical problem in patients with immobilization, cancer, indwelling central venous catheter and surgery. However, although rare, it may occur in patients with inherited thrombophilia. Protein S deficiency is known to increase the risk of venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. There are many reports of venous thrombosis with protein S deficiency, but there are few reports of arterial thrombosis, especially recurrent acute pulmonary embolism. Here, we report a case of recurrent pulmonary embolism associated with type II protein S deficiency.
Key Words: Pulmonary embolism, Venous thrombosis, Protein S deficiency, Inherited blood coagulation disorders
