Additional Information

The accurate diagnosis of von Willebrand disease (VWD) is crucial to its management. This resource describes laboratory tests based on the observable traits, or phenotype, of a person with bleeding symptoms and a positive family bleeding history that can be used to determine the specific type and variant of VWD. The companion monograph, TOH 56 Molecular Diagnosis of von Willebrand Disease, provides a detailed review of the genotypic approach to diagnosing VWD.
