Factor Xi Deficiency

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 07 May 2022

Factor XI deficiency is a disorder that can cause abnormal bleeding due to a lack of the factor XI protein, which is entailed in blood clotting. Nevertheless, no matter the seriousness of the protein deficiency, most affected individuals have relatively mild blood loss problems, and some people with this disorder have few if any symptoms. One of the most common feature of factor XI deficiency is prolonged bleeding after trauma or surgery, particularly including the inside of the mouth and nose or the urinary system. Women with this disorder can have heavy or long term menstruation bleeding or long term blood loss after giving birth.
