Diagnosis of inherited platelet function disorders: guidance from the SSC Subcommittee on Platelet Physiology

Although rare, the prevalence of inherited platelet function disorders (IPFD) is probably underestimated due to underdiagnosis [1]. IPFD are heterogeneous in severity, mechanisms, and frequency and few are characterized at the molecular level.
