Clinical Description

Among patients with rare coagulation defects, FX deficiency can be one of the most severe.[6] The onset of hemorrhagic manifestations in profound deficiency is typically seen early in age. In less severe deficiency, patients may experience bleeding at any age. The most frequent sites of bleeding are the mucosal, soft tissue, and central nervous system. Among mucosal bleeding, epistaxis is the most frequent, followed by menorrhagia and gastrointestinal episodes. Soft tissue bleeding such as hemarthroses and muscle hematomas may mimic classic hemophilia. Central nervous system hemorrhages represent life-threatening manifestations of severe FX deficiency. Individuals with mild FX deficiencies may only experience bleeding after trauma or surgery.[7]
