dys·fi·brin·o·ge·ne·mi·a

(dis'fī-brin'ō-jĕ-nē'mē-ă), [MIM*134820]
An autosomal dominant disorder of qualitatively abnormal fibrinogens of various types; each type is named for the city in which the abnormal fibrinogen was discovered. Examples include: 1) Amsterdam, Bethesda II, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Saint Louis, Zurich I and II: major defect, aggregation of fibrin monomers; thrombin time prolonged; inhibitory effect on normal clotting; asymptomatic; 2) Bethesda I and Detroit: major defect, fibrinopeptide release; thrombin time prolonged; inhibitory effect on normal clotting; abnormal bleeding; 3) Baltimore: major defect, fibrinopeptide release; thrombin time prolonged; no inhibitory effect on normal clotting; bleeding and thrombosis; 4) Leuven: major defect, questionable aggregation of fibrin monomers; thrombin time prolonged; slight inhibitory effect on normal clotting; abnormal bleeding; 5) Metz: major defect unreported; thrombin time infinite; effect on normal clotting unreported; abnormal bleeding; 6) Nancy: major defect, aggregation of fibrin monomers; thrombin time prolonged; slight inhibitory effect on normal clotting; asymptomatic; 7) Oklahoma: major defect unreported; thrombin time normal; no effect on normal clotting; abnormal bleeding; 8) Oslo: major defect unreported; thrombin time shortened; effect on normal clotting unreported; abnormal thrombosis; 9) Parma: major defect unreported; thrombin time infinite; no inhibitory effect on normal clotting; abnormal bleeding; 10) Paris I: major defect unreported; thrombin time infinite; inhibitory effect on normal clotting; asymptomatic; 11) Paris II: major defect unreported; thrombin time prolonged; inhibitory effect on normal clotting; asymptomatic; 12) Troyes: major defect unreported; thrombin time prolonged; effect on normal clotting unreported; asymptomatic; 13) Vancouver: major defect unreported; thrombin time prolonged; no effect on normal clotting; abnormal bleeding; 14) Wiesbaden: major defect, aggregation of fibrin monomers; thrombin time prolonged; inhibitory effect on normal clotting; bleeding and thrombosis.

dysfibrinogenemia

A group of qualitative, usually AD, fibrinogen defects ranging in severity from innocuous to hemorrhagic diathesis; most are asymptomatic and detected by presurgical screens, given the abnormalities in coagulation parameters; these subjects suffer frequent spontaneous abortion, bleeding, poor wound healing, and thrombosis Lab Normal fibrinogen and clotting times; ↑ PT, ↑ thrombin time, ↑ reptilase time. See Fibrinogen.

dys·fi·brin·o·ge·ne·mi·a

(dis'fī-brin'ō-jĕ-nē'mē-ă)
An autosomal dominant disorder of qualitatively abnormal fibrinogens of various types, resulting in abnormalities of coagulation tests (bleeding time, clotting time, thrombin time); symptoms vary from none to abnormal bleeding and excessive clotting.
Synonym(s): dysfibrinogenaemia.

The test therefore only detects disturbances in the final stages of coagulation, especially dysfibrinogenaemia or the presence of thrombin inhibitors (Koch and Biber, 2007).
