PMID:  2510438     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A young woman with recurrent thrombophlebitis following splenectomy for immune thrombocytopenic purpura and two cesarian sections was found to carry a protein C deficiency. This pathology should be considered in any patient with recurrent thromboembolism even when predisposing factors such as pregnancy and postoperative state may by themselves be responsible for such manifestations.
