Combined hereditary thrombophilia is an uncommon entity associated with higher risk of early onset thrombosis. We report a
case of 39-year-old male with combined deficiency of natural anticoagulants (protein C, S and anti thrombin) along with hyper
homocystenemia and factor V Leiden mutation, presenting with life threatening bilateral pulmonary embolism. The clinical
implications of combined thrombophilia are also discussed.
