Answer

Patients with inherited prothrombin deficiency should receive follow up with a hematologist at a comprehensive center that cares for patients with bleeding disorders. Follow-up should occur on a yearly basis as a minimum.

A hematologist should initially evaluate patients with acquired hypoprothrombinemia. Follow-up care depends on the underlying cause.
