A 32-year-old woman was referred to our hospital because of transient left visual disturbance and right hemiparesis. Her plasminogen level and its activity were both reduced, and she was diagnosed as having type I congenital plasminogen abnormality. No other coagulation abnormality was detected. Transcranial Doppler ultrasonography (TCD) showed high-intensity transient signals (HITS) with a characteristic chirp sound. This is the first report of type I congenital plasminogen abnormality with HITS observed by TCD.
