Summary

46 Factor v leiden thrombophilia is an inherited disorder that results in an increased risk of developing abnormal blood clots. factor v leiden is the name of a specific gene mutation in the f5 gene. this gene plays a critical role in the normal formation of blood clots in response to an injury. people can inherit one or two copies of the factor v leiden gene mutation. those who inherit one copy are called heterozygotes. people who inherit two copies of the mutation, one from each parent, are called homozygotes. having the factor v leiden mutation increases your risk for developing a clot in your legs called a deep venous thrombosis (dvt). it also increases your risk of developing a clot that travels through the bloodstream and lodges in the lungs, called a pulmonary embolism (pe)
