Key Points

  • Hemophilia C
    • Pathogenesis
      • Deficiency of Factor XI
    • Genetics
      • Autosomal recessive inheritance
    • Presentation
      • Clinical symptoms are usually milder in this syndrome vs. Hemophilias A or B
      • Mild bleeding
        • Usually only detected with prolonged bleeding after trauma or surgery
    • Diagnosis
      • Definitive: Factor XI levels
      • Elevated PTT
        • Due to inhibited intrinsic coagulation pathway
      • Normal PT
        • Extrinsic (tissue factor) pathway is unaffected
      • Normal Bleeding Time
        • Platelet plug formation (primary hemostasis is unaffected)
    • Treatment
      • Recombinant Factor XI concentrate
