PMID:  19806855     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Process    
A 13-year-old boy with Mycoplasma pneumoniae pulmonary infection developed deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. He was found to have protein S deficiency and transient antiphospholipid antibodies. Though uncommon, it is important to consider venous thromboembolic disease in children whose clinical course is atypically severe.
