Answer

Congenital factor X deficiency is a lifelong bleeding disorder. Death can occur owing to massive hemorrhage resulting from trauma. Hemorrhage can also occur as a result of surgery if proper precautions are not taken. Cases of both fatal and nonfatal perinatal and infant intracranial hemorrhages have been reported. [41, 42, 43] Disabling hemarthroses can also occur.
