Von Willebrand Disease is typically an inherited condition and the severity of the illness is often determined by whether it has been inherited from one or both parents. The illness is caused when there is a deficiency in the blood protein, Von Willebrand factor, or when this protein is not working properly. Symptoms of Von Willebrand Disease are primarily focused around excessive bleeding as the blood is unable to clot effectively. Individuals with Von Willebrand Disease should take more caution when performing any activities that have the potential to cause bleeding or bruising. Acquired Von Willebrand Disease can occur when the efficiency and presence of the Von Willebrand factor in the blood is affected by a secondary illness.
