FERNANDEZ-MERJILDO, Diana  and  NAJAR TRUJILLO, Enrique. Stroke in a young adult with protein S deficiency and patent foramen ovale: Case report. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2016, vol.27, n.1, pp.46-49. ISSN 1018-130X.

We report the case of 38-year-old woman presenting with an ischemic cerebrovascular accident, protein S deficiency and patent foramen ovale. The patient attended the emergency room for presently a sudden onset of right hemiparesis and dysarthria. The physical examination revealed marked palsy on the right side with positive Babinski sign. The cerebral CT-scan revealed a cortico-sub cortical left temporal-parietal hypo density, and the angio magnetic resonance confirmed the presence of cerebral infarct. A trans thoracic echocardiography revealed the presence of a patent foramen ovale and laboratory tests showed deficiency of S protein.

Keywords : Stroke; protein S; foramen ovale.
