Understanding Glanzmann's Thrombasthenia (GT)
Glanzmann's Thrombasthenia (GT) is an extremely rare, autosomal recessive blood disorder. In GT, the platelets lack GPIIb/IIIa, preventing fibrinogen bridging and significantly prolonging bleeding time. This condition can be life-threatening. Symptoms are similar to Bernard-Soulier Syndrome, with carriers experiencing bruising, nosebleeds, and bleeding in the mouth and gums.
