Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Two cases of Hansen disease demonstrating a lupus‐like inhibitor directed against the activation of coagulation factor X are described. Each case showed factor‐X activity markedly depressed by an inhibitor when measured in one assay system; yet normal levels were measured by three alternate factor‐X assay systems.
