Abstract

Objective: Bleeding is one of the most important problems in humans. Absence, deficiency or dysfunctions of protein factors in the coagulation system can cause prolonged bleeding, morbidity or mortality. Although factor VIII, factor IX and von Willebrand factor deficiencies are the most common, deficiencies in all other factors exist, called rare factor deficiencies. This study aimed to present the clinical presentations, laboratory findings, treatments, and surgical interventions in patients with rare factor deficiencies other than factor VII followed up in our clinic.
