The severity of Protein C Deficiency varies from mild, which is most common, to severe. Most people who have this blood clotting disorder will have no symptoms or simply have an increased risk for deep vein thrombosis during recovery from surgery or periods of immobility.

Babies born with the severe form of Protein C Deficiency, however, can develop tiny blood clots throughout their body that prevent blood flow and may cause fatal tissue death.
