Other inherited bleeding disorders: Platelet defects

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter reviews less common inherited bleeding diathesis such as congenital thrombocytopenia, inherited platelet dysfunction, and deficiency of coagulation factors such as XIII. Inherited platelet defects fall into two general categories: congenital defects in platelet function and the inherited thrombocytopenic disorders. These syndromes cause varying degrees of platelet-type bleeding ranging from minor to severe.
