We ­present the case of a 32-year-old man suf­fer­ing from recur­rent epi­sodes of deep vein throm­bo­sis (DVT). He was het­er­o­zy­gous for the G1691A muta­tion in the Fac­tor V gene. His ­father was het­er­o­zy­gous for the same muta­tion and had a ­unique epi­sode of DVT after a frac­ture of the tibia. Genet­ic pre­dis­po­si­tion sig­nif­i­cant­ly influ­enc­es the prev­a­lence of throm­bot­ic ­events, how­ev­er, addi­tion­al ­unknown fac­tors may be ­involved in the initi­a­tion and recur­rence of ­venous throm­boem­bo­lism.
