25 May 2021 (Tuesday) - Scott Syndrome

Scott syndrome…. No – I’d never heard of it either. A link to this article appeared on the Facebook “Hematology Interest Group” page. 

Scott syndrome is a coagulation disorder that results in an impaired thrombin formation due to a dysfunctional phosphatidylserine transporter. However this bleeding disorder shows normal coagulation studies. The syndrome is diagnosed based on high shear stress platelet assay using the Cone and Plate(let) Analyzer— CPA  test which showed decreased platelet aggregation sizes and decreased surface covered by the aggregates.
