Causes of Afibrinogenemia

Afibrinogenemia is caused by fibrinogen deficiency, a coagulation factor-I and a protein present in the blood that is required for the blood coagulation process and this deficiency occurs due to the mutation of genes. When a person gets injured then, fibrinogen is converted into a protein Fibrin which is main for blood clotting. Due to missed mutations of the fibrinogen gene alpha (FGA), beta (FGB) or gamma (FGG), the fibrinogen deficiency occurs which causes an interruption in the blood clotting process and leads to excessive bleeding in people suffering from Afibrinogenemia.
