A 70-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital complaining of chest pain. An electrocardiogram revealed ST elevation in the I and aVL leads. Cardiac catherterization showed a diagnonal branch obstruction. Percutaneous coronary intervention was successfully performed to the diagnonal branch. Brachial arterial thrombosis occured after the intervention, and surgical thrombectomy was successfully performed. Protein C activity levels in her plasma were 27% of the normal value, and so we diagnosed a protein C deficiency. The patient is now being treated with warfarin, and so far no further clinical thrombotic episode has occurred.
