This applies to activated protein C resistance, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, antithrombin III deficiency, factor V Leiden mutation, lupus anticoagulant with hypercoagulable state, protein C deficiency, protein S deficiency, prothrombin gene mutation, and systemic lupus erythematosus [SLE] inhibitor with hypercoagulable state.

Factor V Leiden Definition and Symptoms

Factor V leiden is a mutation in the clotting factor V in the blood. This mutation greatly increases a persons chance of developing blood clots in veins. Men and women are equally affected by this mutation. Most people show no symptoms or signs however in some cases a person may develop a clot in one of their veins that is an indication of this blood disorder.
