ABSTRACT

Glanzmann thrombasthenia is a rare autosomal recessive bleeding disorder due to the absence of glycoprotein IIb/IIIa. Prolonged untreated or unsuccessfully treated hemorrhages are life threatening. It is estimated to affect one in one million individuals in worldwide. The symptoms of Glanzmann thrombasthenia usually begin at birth or shortly thereafter. Purpura, epistaxis, gingival hemorrhage, and menorrhagia are main features and gastrointestinal bleeding and hematuria are less common.
