Other Factor Deficiencies

Other factor deficiencies

Apart from haemophilia and von Willebrand disorder, there are also other rare blood clotting factor deficiencies. These are caused when a particular factor or protein in the blood that helps blood to clot is lower than normal, missing or doesn’t work properly.

The following web sites have more detailed information on other factor deficiencies:

World Federation of Hemophilia - See the About Bleeding Disorders section.
