De Lucia V., Andreassi M. G., Sabatini L., Ait-Ali L., Spadoni I., Giusti S. Myocardial infarction and arterial thrombosis in identical newborn twins with homozygosity for the PAI-1 4 G/5 G polymorphism. In: International Journal of Cardiology, vol. 137 pp. e1 - - 4. Elsevier, 2009.
Myocardial infarction in the perinatal period, in the absence of congenital heart disease or coronary artery lesions, is rare. The most common etiology described are the thromboembolism and perinatal asphyxia. We report a case of monozygotic twins who developed, after birth, acute vascular events and both had PAI-1 4G/4G homozygosity.
