Abstract

The purpose of this report is to describe imaging findings in activated protein C resistance, a hereditary cause of recurrent thrombosis. The case described was unusual in that a neonate was affected, whereas the vast majority of cases occur in adulthood. This entity is important to diagnose because of the recurrent nature of thromboses and the fact that relatives are often affected.
