There are many different kinds of platelet function disorders. They can be divided into two categories:

  • hereditary disorders (meaning that they run in the family)
  • acquired disorders (meaning they are caused by other diseases or the use of medications.

In platelet function disorders, a person’s blood platelets do not work properly. The result is that blood does not clot the way it should.
