Glanzmanns thromboasthenia is an inherited platelet disorder where the platelets do not function normally in their important role in the clotting mechanism of the blood. As a result bleeding into the skin and other areas can occur but is less severe than with thrombocytopenic purpura. Platelet transfusions may be needed from time to time. I am not sure whether there is any place for immunoglobulin transfusons in this condition but your haematologist will inform you regarding treatment.
