Abstract

The authors report a case of arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) of the small intestine in a young patient with protein S deficiency. These disorders have not been previously reported to occur together. Protein S deficiency may cause thromboses in unusual sites, including the mesenteric veins. Several mechanisms linking protein S deficiency to the occurrence of AVMs in this patient are offered.
