Common Causes of Easy or Excessive Bruising and Bleeding CMC

Clemenceau Medical Center Hospital offers advanced diagnosis and personalized treatment for easy or excessive bruising and bleeding, addressing underlying causes and providing specialized care for optimal patient outcomes. Easy or excessive bruising and bleeding, also known as bleeding diathesis, can result from various causes and related conditions, often involving abnormalities in the blood-clotting process.

Common causes for Easy or Excessive Bruising and Bleeding

  1. Hemophilia: A genetic disorder characterized by deficient or dysfunctional clotting factors, causing spontaneous bleeding and easy bruising.
  2. Von Willebrand Disease: Another hereditary disorder affecting blood clotting due to insufficient von Willebrand factor, leading to prolonged bleeding after injury.
  3. Thrombocytopenia: A low platelet count can result from various factors, such as autoimmune diseases or medications, causing increased bleeding and bruising.
  4. Liver Disease: Liver disorders like cirrhosis can lead to decreased production of clotting factors, resulting in bleeding issues.
  5. Vitamin Deficiencies: Deficits in vitamin K or C can impair blood clotting mechanisms, leading to easy bruising and bleeding.
  6. Medications: Certain drugs, including blood thinners (anticoagulants) and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), can increase bleeding risk.
  7. Leukemia: Blood cancers like leukemia can disrupt the normal production of blood cells, causing abnormal bleeding and bruising.
  8. Platelet Disorders: Conditions like idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) can result in platelet destruction, affecting clotting and leading to easy bruising.
  9. Autoimmune Disorders: Diseases like lupus or immune thrombocytopenia can cause the immune system to attack blood cells, resulting in bleeding problems.
  10. Hemorrhagic Fevers: Infections such as dengue or Ebola can lead to severe bleeding as part of their clinical presentation.
  11. Bone Marrow Disorders: Conditions like myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) can affect blood cell production, leading to bleeding issues.
