Hereditary factor VII (FVII) deficiency is a rare autosomal recessive disorder, characterized by decreasing the coagulation activity of FVII in plasma and heterogeneous with bleeding in different degrees. Hereditary factor VII deficiency is usually caused by missense mutations in the F7 gene, which may affect the structure and function of FVII. Here we present a case of hereditary factor VII deficiency in an infant who was found to have a prolonged prothrombin time(PT)and 2.0% of FVII activity.

Word Count for abstract and main text is 100 and1 217 respectively. And there are two tables and one figure. abbreviations FVII factor VII PT prothrombin time APTT activated partial thromboplastin time
