Hereditary Dysfibrinogenemia

Congenital Fibrinogen Deficiency


Presentation

  • A 9-year-old boy presented with sudden onset of nausea, vomiting and unsteady gait after a bread-eating game, which possibly caused neck hyperextension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Updated content presents the latest coding information so you can practice with the most current information available.[books.google.com]

  • Approximately 55% of patients with inherited dysfibrinogenemia are asymptomatic, 25% have bleeding and 20% have thrombosis. Approximately 14% experience both bleeding and thrombosis.[clinlabnavigator.com]
Inflammation
  • No evidence of cardioemboli or systemic inflammation was apparent. Repeated blood examination revealed low activity of fibrinogen. Genetic testing confirmed the presence of hereditary dysfibrinogenemia with a mutation in the FGB gene (BβGly15Cys).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
