Prothrombin thrombophilia is the second most common type of blood clotting disorder. It also increases the risk for deep vein thrombosis and pregnancy complications, including slowed fetal development and miscarriage. Prothrombin thrombophilia is most likely to occur in those of European descent, and only a small percentage of people with this disorder will ever have an abnormal blood clot.
