What is Thrombophilia?

Description of the disease

Thrombophilia is an inherited or acquired condition in which the blood has an increased tendency to form blood clots. Thrombi can form in veins or arteries, which can lead to serious complications such as stroke or venous thrombosis.


  • Hereditary thrombophilia
  • Acquired thrombophilia


Symptoms of thrombophilia may include pain and swelling in the area of the thrombosis, shortness of breath, rapid fatigue, dizziness, as well as symptoms related to thrombosis complications.


Hereditary thrombophilia is usually associated with certain genetic mutations, while acquired thrombophilia can be caused by factors such as prolonged immobilization, pregnancy, certain diseases, and the use of certain medications.


Diagnosis of thrombophilia includes performing special blood tests, including measuring the level of coagulation factors and searching for genetic mutations.


Treatment of thrombophilia may include taking anticoagulants, as well as correcting the risk of thrombosis by changing lifestyle and applying preventive measures.


Preventive measures include minimizing risk factors for thrombosis, regular physical exercises, weight control, and smoking cessation.


Treatment of thrombophilia is carried out by a hematologist or a therapist specializing in the field of blood and blood coagulation system.
