We report a case of a young male who presented with acute limb ischemia after sport. With no prior history of disease, a non-infective endocarditis of the native aortic valve was diagnosed. After surgical valve replacement, the patient suffered from acute myocardial ischemia under phenprocoumon therapy. Anti-coagulant monitoring was subsequently changed to Factor II analysis after a rare Factor VII deficiency and prothrombin mutation (G20210A) was diagnosed. View Full-Text
