What is Bernard-Soulier Syndrome?
(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, Bernard-Soulier syndrome is a bleeding disorder which is associated with abnormal platelets or blood cell fragments involved in the blood clotting process. In affected individuals, platelets are unusually large and fewer in number than usual (a combination known as macrothrombocytopenia).
People with Bernard-Soulier syndrome are more likely to bruise easily and have an increased risk of nosebleeds (epistaxis). They may also experience abnormally heavy or prolonged bleeding following minor injury or surgery or even without trauma (spontaneous bleeding). In some affected individuals, bleeding under the skin causes tiny red or purple spots on the skin called petechiae. Women with Bernard-Soulier syndrome often have heavy or prolonged menstrual periods (menorrhagia).
