Answer

See the list below:

  • No physical stigmata are associated with congenital antithrombin III deficiency.

  • Homozygote-deficient newborns may have purpura fulminans-type presentation with embolic lesions in the skin. Heterozygote newborns are typically normal in appearance and do not commonly develop purpura fulminans unless coexisting risk factors are present.
