Case: DVT During Pregnancy

Our Quick Question case study for April, 2019, is adapted from Chapter 35 of the March, 2019 6th edition of Rodak’s Hematology, Clinical Principles and Applications:

A 33-year-old pregnant woman developed deep vein thrombosis in her left leg. She reported a family history–her mother had an episode of superficial thrombophlebitis and her brother had experienced a DVT during a 12-hour flight. Do you consider her DVT to be acquired, or is it likely to be associated with a congenital thrombosis risk factor?
