Abstract

Resistance to activated protein C in a patient with multiple myocardial infarctions and stroke - a case report: A case of a 49-year-old female with a history of two myocardial infarctions (MI) and ischaemic stroke is presented. The patient was admitted to the hospital due to a third acute MI. Laboratory investigations revealed resistance to activated protein C due to factor V Leiden mutation.
