Summaries for Protein C Deficiency

Genetics Home Reference : 25 Protein C deficiency is a disorder that increases the risk of developing abnormal blood clots; the condition can be mild or severe. Individuals with mild protein C deficiency are at risk of a type of blood clot known as a deep vein thrombosis (DVT). These clots occur in the deep veins of the arms or legs, away from the surface of the skin. A DVT can travel through the bloodstream and lodge in the lungs, causing a life-threatening blockage of blood flow known as a pulmonary embolism (PE). While most people with mild protein C deficiency never develop abnormal blood clots, certain factors can add to the risk of their development. These factors include increased age, surgery, inactivity, or pregnancy. Having another inherited disorder of blood clotting in addition to protein C deficiency can also influence the risk of abnormal blood clotting. In severe cases of protein C deficiency, infants develop a life-threatening blood clotting disorder called purpura fulminans soon after birth. Purpura fulminans is characterized by the formation of blood clots in the small blood vessels throughout the body. These blood clots block normal blood flow and can lead to localized death of body tissue (necrosis). Widespread blood clotting uses up all available blood clotting proteins. As a result, abnormal bleeding occurs in various parts of the body, which can cause large, purple patches on the skin. Individuals who survive the newborn period may experience recurrent episodes of purpura fulminans.

MalaCards based summary : Protein C Deficiency, also known as autosomal recessive thrombophilia due to congenital protein c deficiency, is related to budd-chiari syndrome and purpura fulminans. An important gene associated with Protein C Deficiency is PROC (Protein C, Inactivator Of Coagulation Factors Va And VIIIa), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+ and Collagen chain trimerization. The drugs Protein C and Fibrinolytic Agents have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, lung and liver, and related phenotypes are cardiovascular system and homeostasis/metabolism

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 Protein C deficiency is a disorder that increases a person's risk to develop abnormal blood clots due to a deficiency of the Protein C, a protein in the body that prevents blood clotting. It may be inherited or acquired. Inherited deficiency of protein C can lead to familial thrombophilia (increased tendency toward thrombosis). It is caused by mutations in the PROC gene, and in most cases is transmitted in an autosomal dominant way; a few people inherit an abnormal allele from both parents and may have a more severe disease (please see autosomal recessive protein C deficiency) because they have very low levels of active protein C. Acquired protein C deficiency may be caused by large blood clots, liver disease, disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), infection (sepsis), vitamin K deficiency, use of warfarin or certain types of chemotherapy. While most people with protein C deficiency do not have problems, some are at risk for a type of clot called deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which can travel through the bloodstream and become stuck in the lung, causing pulmonary embolism. Also, abnormal bleeding can occur in various parts of the body causing purple patches on the skin. Treatment depend on the symptoms severity. Most people do not need any treatment. However, in situations of clot risk such as pregnancy, surgery or trauma, prevention treatment may be indicated.
