    Notes: Abstract Over a 3 year period the R506Q mutation in the factor V (FV) FV:Q506 gene, FV, factor XII (FXII), prothrombin, protein C, protein S, antithrombin, heparin cofactor II, anticardiolipin antibodies and lipoprotein (a) (Lp(a)) were measured in 32 infants and children with sinus thrombosis. Heterozygous FV:Q506 (n= 5), homozygous FV:Q506 (n= 2), homozygous FXII deficiency (n= 1), protein C deficiency type I (n= 5), protein C deficiency type II (n=1), antithrombin deficiency type I (n = 1) increased Lp (a) (n=5), activated protein C-resistance without mutation in the FV gene (n= 2), and increased anticardiolipin IgG antibodies (n= 2) were diagnosed in the children investigated. In a further two patients we found combinations of increased Lp(a) with moderate hyperhomocystinaemia and heterozygous plasminogen deficiency with heterozygous FXII deficiency. In addition, increased anticardiolipin IgG antibodies were found in combination with heterozygous FV:Q506 (n= 1) and protein C type I deficiency (n= 2) respectively. Out of 32 patients with venous sinus thrombosis, 3 showed additional peripheral venous vascular occlusion. Contributing factors were present in 31 out of 32 patients investigated. Family members of 10 affected children had suffered from venous thrombo-embolism prior to the study. Conclusion Our data suggest that additional contributing factors may promote manifestation of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis in infants and children with an inherited prothrombotic state. Further prospective studies are required to evaluate their potential role as “triggering” agents.

    Notes: Abstract To evaluate the role of multiple established and potential causes of childhood thrombophilia, 285 children with a history of thrombosis aged neonate to 18 years (first thrombotic onset) were investigated and compared with 185 healthy peers. APC- resistance (FV:Q506), protein C, protein S, antithrombin, heparin cofactor II (HCII), histidine-rich glycoprotein (HRGP), and prothrombin (F.II), factor XII (F.XII), plasminogen, homocysteine and lipoprotein (a) (Lp(a)) were investigated. In 59% of patients investigated one thrombotic defect was diagnosed, 19.6% showed two thrombotic risk factors, while in 21.4% of children investigated no risk factor could be identified. Single defects comprised established causes of inherited thrombophilia: FV:Q506 (homozygous n = 10, heterozygous n = 69), protein C (homozygous n = 1; heterozygous n = 31), heterozygous type I deficiency states of protein S (n = 7), antithrombin (n = 7) and homocystinuria (n = 6); potentially inherited clotting abnormalities which may be associated with thrombophilia: F.XII (n = 3), plasminogen (n = 2), HCII (n = 1), increased HRGP (n = 4); new candidate risk factors for thrombophilia: elevated plasma levels of Lp(a) (n = 26), F.II (n = 1). Heterozygous FV:Q506 was found in combination with heterozygous type I deficiency states of protein C (n = 2), protein S (n = 13), antithrombin (n = 8) and HCII (n = 1), increased Lp(a) (n = 13), and once each with elevated levels of F.II, moderate hyperhomocysteinemia, fibrinogen concentrations 〉700 mg/dl and increased HRGP. In addition to the association with FV:Q506, heterozygous protein C type I deficiency was combined with deficiencies of protein S (n = 2), antithrombin (n = 1), and increased Lp(a) (n = 3). One patient showed protein C deficiency along with familially increased von Willebrand factor 〉250%. Besides coexistence with FV:Q506 and protein C deficiency, protein S deficiency was combined with decreased F.XII and increased Lp(a) in one subject each. Furthermore, we found combinations of antithrombin deficiency/elevated Lp(a), hyperhomocysteinemia/Lp(a), deficiency of HCII/plasminogen, and plasminogen deficiency along with increased Lp(a) each in one. Increased prothrombin levels were associated with fibrinogen concentrations 〉700 mg/dl and with HCII deficiency in one child each. Carrier frequencies of single and combined defects were significantly higher in patients compared with the controls. Conclusion In conclusion, data of this multicentre evaluation indicate that paediatric thromboembolism should be viewed as a multifactorial disorder.
