Acquired Platelet Function Disorder

Alternate Names : Acquired Qualitative Platelet Disorder

Acquired Platelet Function Disorder | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What can be done to prevent the condition?

Most cases of acquired platelet function defect cannot be prevented. Avoiding alcohol abuse, which is the most common cause of cirrhosis, could prevent many cases due to liver disease.

What are the long-term effects of the condition?

Most long-term effects are related to the cause of the acquired platelet function defect. For example, cases due to medicines usually go away when the medicine is stopped. These cases may cause no long-term effects. If the cause is cancer or liver disease, death may result. In rare cases, platelet function problems can cause serious abnormal bleeding in certain areas, such as the brain.

What are the risks to others?

Acquired platelet function disorders pose no risk to others.
