Glanzmann thrombasthenia GT is a rare autosomal recessive bleeding syndrome affecting the megakaryocyte lineage and characterized by lack of platelet. Treatment can depend on what type of bleed you may have or what type of procedure you may be undergoing. For all other comments, please send your remarks via contact us. This receptor glanzmann activated when the platelet is stimulated by ADP, epinephrinecollagen, or thrombin.

This test is highly specific for GT, glznzmann platelet aggregation fails to occur with any agonist, except ristocetin, where the reaction is preserved.

Avoid anti-inflammatory drugs e. Some of the reasons that platelets do not work as they should are: A systematic review of management and outcomes of 35 pregnant women with GT revealed that hemorrhage during or after delivery trombastenia de glanzmann common and severe, and occurred up to 20 days postpartum. This manuscript offers a comprehensive review of our understanding of GT and the available treatment options.


Administration of recombinant factor VIIa is an increasingly used therapeutic alternative. Regular dental care is essential to prevent gingival bleeding. Diagnosis Most individuals affected with Glanzmann thrombasthenia have a normal number of platelets but have a prolonged bleeding time, which means it takes longer than usual for a standardized cut to stop bleeding.

She underwent anterior-posterior nasal packing with no more bleeding after the procedure. Ann Pediatr Paris ; 18 2: When these two signs are associated with a normal platelet count and morphology, the diagnosis of GT is clear-cut. Pregnancy and in particular, delivery, represent a particularly severe hemorrhagic risk. Pathophysiology of Haemostasis and Thrombosis.

Each glycoprotein has a specific target, either another platelet or a target in the vessel wall, and a specific role to play in forming the platelet plug.

Acquired Glanzmann’s thrombasthenia associated with Hodgkin’s lymphoma: Deletions and insertions, nonsense and missense mutations are common causes of GT. Additionally, she had a history of bleeding after minimal trauma and gingivorrhagia. Alan T Nurden 1.
