Glanzmann Thrombasthenia (GT) is a bleeding disorder caused by defective platelets, which results in an inability for blood to clot properly. This variant of the disease, found in the Quarter Horse and Peruvian Paso, is caused by a recessive mutation to the gene ITGA2B. A related variant is also found in the Quarter Horse, as well as the Thoroughbred.
Clinical signs usually are characterised by bleeding of the skin, mucous membranes and gums, and may also include purpura (reddening or purpling of exposed skin), epistaxis (nosebleeds), and gastrointestinal hemorrhage.
