Abstract Number: PB0708
Meeting: ISTH 2021 Congress
Background: • Rare bleeding disorders are a heterogeneous group of hereditary diseases characterized by a quantitative or qualitative deficiency of blood coagulation factors[1-2];
• Prevalence in the general population varying between 1 in 500 000 for FVII deficiency and 1 in 2 million for FXIII, FII deficiencies[3-4];
• In comparison with haemophilia epistaxis, umbilical cord bleeding occur more frequently, while hemarthrosis, muscle bleeding occur more rarely ;
Aims: • Analysis of clinical manifestations in children with various rare bleeding disorders observed in our centers in outpatient consultative unit and short-term Hospital Department in 2017 – 2019.
Methods: • Retrospective analysis of medical records;
• 47 patients (0-18 y.o.) with rare bleeding disorders;
• Bleeding history was analyzed with Pediatric Bleeding Questionnaire;
Results: Analysis of bleedings:
– 40% of patients appeared asymptomatic.
– Most common bleedings: skin bleeding, epistaxis, tooth bleeding.
– High percent of joint bleeding – 7 patients.
– Most severe bleedings were seen at VKCFD, Afibrinogenemia and Factor VII deficiency
Conclusions: • The prevalence of one or another rare bleeding disorder is connected to ethnic characteristics of the population and is not always proportional to the expected frequency;
• More data is required to establish the local characteristics of the spread of rare bleeding disorders and to develop adequate diagnostic criteria;
