Von Willebrand disease


Von Willebrand disease is often inherited, but in rare cases, it may develop later in life.


Symptoms may include recurrent and prolonged nosebleeds, bleeding from the gums, increased menstrual flow, and excessive bleeding from a cut.


Treatment focuses on stopping or preventing bleeding episodes, typically by using medications.
