Abstract

Background: Perthes Disease (PD) is generally a self-limiting disease of childhood but it causes severe pain and may lead to deformity of the femoral head. Intravascular thrombosis seems to form the main mechanism in the pathogenesis of the disease. The aim of this study was to determine hereditary thrombotic risk factors in Turkish children with PD.
