VWD and get petechia on my arms and chest.
Vonwilabrands runs in my family. From sever to moderate. So bleeding is something we are used to but past several years my grandmother has been throwing clots as well. It looks like something that may occur in older age. Her hematologist just said that she is unique which I don't think is really an answer. Her clotting factor fluctuates as well from 27% to normal.
