Answer

Problems to be considered include vitamin K deficiency and other factor deficiencies. Other congenital bleeding disorders must be excluded. These may include the following:

  • von Willebrand disease (autosomal dominant transmission)

  • Platelet disorders (eg, Glanzmann thrombasthenia)

  • Deficiency of other coagulation factors (ie, factor II, V, VII, X, or XI; or fibrinogen)
