[Anesthesia in Sebastian syndrome: a new hereditary macrothrombocytopenia].

Rev Esp Anestesiol Reanim 2003 Aug-Sep;50(7):364-9

Servicio de Anestesiología, Reanimación y Terapéutica del Dolor, Hospital Universitario Miguel Servet, Zaragoza.

The macrothrombocytopenias make up a heterogeneous group of disease involving thrombocytopenia and giant platelets; other clinical or laboratory findings, such as hereditary nephritis, sensorineural hearing loss, leukocyte inclusions, and cataracts, may also be present. The tendency to bleeding is highly variable and is due to decreased expression of the GP1b-V-IX complex on the surface of platelets, leading to altered platelet-vessel wall and platelet-platelet interactions. The 5 autosomal dominant giant-platelet disorders that are associated with macrothrombocytopenia are May-Hegglin anormaly, Epstein, Fechtner, and Sebastian syndromes, and Alport-like syndrome with macrothrombocytopenia.
