Paris-Trousseau syndrome

Paris-Trousseau syndrome (PTS) is an inherited disorder characterized by mild hemorrhagic tendency associated with 11q chromosome deletion.[1] It manifests as a granular defect within an individual's platelets. It is characterized by thrombocytes with defects in α-granule components which affects the cell's surfeace area and, consequently, its abitlity to spread when necessary.[2]

FLI1 has been suggested as a candidate.[3]
