10 days old newborn with coarctation of aortae had multiple thrombus formation in the left atria and aortic arch. At first step aortic isthmus reconstruction and thrombectomy was performed, which were followed by the multiple thrombectomy from mitral valve and aortic arch by extracorporeal circulation. Laboratory findings showed protein C deficiency. This is the first reported case with multiple thrombotic formation caused by protein C deficiency and aortic isthmus stenosis successfully operated on.
