This is the first report of a family with essential athrombia, a qualitative platelet disorder characterized by a moderate hemorrhagic diathesis. Diagnostic laboratory variables include a prolonged bleeding time, normal clot retraction, normal platelet factor 3 activity, and abnormalities in platelet aggregation. This disorder appears to be transmitted as a dominant trait, either autosomal or sex-linked.
