Abstract

A 2-year-old girl with tetralogy of Fallot presented with diffuse cranial infarct after cardiac angiography. Heterozygosity for factor V Leiden and prothrombin 20210A mutations were detected. The authors suggest that if thrombosis develops in patients with congenital heart disease, genetic risk factors should be evaluated.
