Protein C and S are essential in limiting the activation of coagulation in vivo. Their deficiencies predispose the patient to thrombophilia and leads to thrombosis, often at unusual sites. Arterial thrombosis is rarely observed. We report a case of a patient with abdominal arteriovenous thrombosis leading to multiorgan infarction secondary to deficiency of protein C and protein S and presenting as acute abdomen.
