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 . IPFD are heterogeneous in severity, mechanisms, and frequency and few are characterized at the molecular level. While severe IPFD, like Glanzmann Thrombasthenia (GT) or Bernard-Soulier Syndrome (BSS), are now rather straightforward to identify, the diagnosis of most other forms is cumbersome and requires complex assays
