This paper reports the occurrence of a myocardial infarction in a patient with an absolute deficiency of the Hageman factor (XII). Myocardial infarction has been described in two patients with hemophilia (VIII) (1, 2) and in a third, widespread atherosclerosis was found at autopsy (3). Likewise, myocardial infarction has recently been reported in a patient with plasma thromboplastin component (PTC) (IX) deficiency (4). To our knowledge, such an episode has not been reported in a patient with the Hageman defect. The simultaneous occurrence of these two disorders is of particular interest, since normally in vitro Hageman factor must be activated
