Glanzmann thrombasthenia


Glanzmann thrombasthenia
a hereditary platelet abnormality characterized by defective clot retraction, prolonged bleeding time, and related symptoms such as epistaxis and inappropriate bleeding. Clinically there is abnormal glass adhesion and impaired aggregation to ADP, collagen, and thrombin. Most cases are autosomal recessive, but a few are autosomal dominant. Called also thrombasthenia and Glanzmann disease.
