What is GT?
Glanzmann's Thrombasthenia (GT) is an extremely rare, autosomal recessive disorder of the blood in which the platelets lack GPIIb/IIIa. Hence, no fibrinogen bridging can occur, and bleeding time is significantly prolonged. GT can be life-threatening. Like Bernard-Soulier Syndrome, carriers experience bruising, nosebleeds, and bleeding in the mouth and gums.
