Bruising Susceptibility

Understanding rare disease symptoms

Symptoms may affect multiple parts of the body. Understanding which part of the body a symptom affects, can help us to better understand the potential underlying causes of a symptom, including a rare disease or genetic syndrome.

What is Bruising susceptibility?

It means an individual is more susceptible to bruising. Bruising is a discoloration of the skin, caused when blood reaches the skin tissue from ruptured or broken blood vessels.

Someone who is more susceptible to bruising may bruise frequently without any known causes or significant trauma, they may bruise more severely to trauma or injury.

Bruising, for example, is common in active children. But if a child seems more susceptible to bruising, than their peers or even siblings, then a medical practitioner should be consulted as there may be an underlying genetic or medical cause for this.

What should I do next?

In some instances, bruising susceptibility may be one of the features of a rare disease or genetic syndrome. In this case fast, targeted genetic analysis can give you a more accurate diagnosis.
