Glanzmann thrombasthenia is a very rare inherited platelet function disorder in which bleeding may be extremely difficult to stop. Recombinant factor VIIa is one of the alternative treatments for bleeding. The authors report here their experience with the use of factor VIIa, which may be useful for arresting bleeding in Glazmann thrombasthenia.
