Abstract

Background/Aims: Patients with inflammatory bowel disease have an increased tendency for thromboembolism. In this study we aimed to determine the frequency of FV gene and Prothrombin G20210A gene mutations in a group of patients with Crohn's Disease (CD) and estimate its correlation with disease activity and clinical subtype.
