Thrombophilia refers to the tendency for thromboembolism, which may be inherited or acquired. Thrombophilic defects can be broadly classified into abnormalities of the procoagulant system and abnormalities of the anticoagulant system. This chapter has two goals: understand the diagnostic testing and risks associated with thrombophilic conditions and review the evaluation and treatment of patients with venous thromboembolism.
