Platelets

What are Platelet Function Disorders?

 

Platelet Function Disorders are rare blood conditions that affect only 2000 - 5000 in the UK. The term 'Platelet Function Disorder' (PFD) could be applied to any condition where platelets do not work properly.


Platelets are small particles in the blood that stick together at sites on injury (for example after a cut) to form a "plug" and stop the bleeding. If your platelets don't work properly you bleed more than normal and this can vary from minor bruising to life threatening bleeding after surgery or an accident.
