Hereditary Antithrombin Deficiency

Common Name(s)

Hereditary Antithrombin Deficiency

Hereditary Antithrombin Deficiency is a disorder of blood clotting. People with this condition are at a higher risk of developing abnormal blood clots. Hereditary antithrombin deficiency is equally likely in men and women and runs in families. Symptoms of a blood clot due to hereditary antithrombin deficiency include coughing up blood, fainting, shortness of breath, and swelling of one leg. A physician can diagnose hereditary antithrombin deficiency with a physical exam and blood tests. The main treatment for management of hereditary antithrombin deficiency is life-long use of blood thinners.
