hypofibrinogenemia (hī´pōfīb-rin´ōjənē´mēə),

n a reduction of fibrinogen in the blood. Excessive bleeding may occur following trauma. The deficiency of fibrinogen may be congenital or may result from faulty synthesis associated with liver disease and defibrinogenation resulting from disorders of pregnancy involving the placenta and amniotic fluid. The normal range is 200 to 600 mg/100 ml of plasma. Clot-ting deficiencies do not occur until the concentration falls below 75 mg/100 ml.

hypofibrinogenemia

deficiency of fibrinogen in the blood. Has been reported as an inherited defect in St. Bernard dogs; is acquired in liver disease and as a sequel of disseminated intravascular coagulation.
