Factor X Deficiency

Common Name(s)

Factor X Deficiency

Factor X deficiency is a rare autosomal recessive bleeding disorder showing variable phenotypic severity. Affected individuals can manifest prolonged nasal and mucosal hemorrhage, menorrhagia, hematuria, and occasionally hemarthrosis. The disorder can be caused either by reduced levels of the factor X protein or by synthesis of a dysfunctional factor X protein (summary by {31:Millar et al., 2000}).
