Bleeding assessment in female patients with the Hermansky‐Pudlak syndrome—A case series
The Hermansky–Pudlak syndrome (HPS) is an autosomal recessive rare disorder characterized by oculocutaneous albinism, bleeding diathesis, chronic granulomatous colitis and/or pulmonary fibrosis. HPS is the most common single‐gene disorder in Puerto Rico with a prevalence of 1:1,800 in the Northwest of the island. Risk of menorrhagia and post‐partum hemorrhage (PPH) in cases of women with HPS have been described in the medical literature, but data regarding comprehensive description of bleeding diathesis remains lacking. For this reason, we aim to identify bleeding events using the International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis Bleeding Assessment Tool (ISTH‐BAT), a standardized quantitative tool that translates the range of severity of bleeding symptoms into a cumulative bleeding score (BS).
