What is Factor-V Leiden Mutation?
Factor V Leiden mutation is a genetic mutation in one of the blood clotting factors. Generally, people with this mutation have a high risk of suffering abnormal blood clots. There will be blood clots predominantly in their legs or lungs. This can result in health problems in the long run. It can also cause blood clots in the mother and also the fetus, thus affecting the pregnancy.

The symptoms in legs include pain, redness, warmth, swelling in the areas of blood clot. In the lungs the symptoms include shortness of breath, cough, difficulty in breathing, chest pain.

The detection of factor V Leiden mutation is done by screening a blood sample. Treatment may include taking anticoagulants if thrombosis or pulmonary embolism is diagnosed in the person.
