Medical Definition of Factor xii deficiency

1. A deficiency of a specific blood clotting factor (XII) that may be genetic or acquired. Administration of heparin or severe liver disease may result in factor XII (Hageman factor) deficiency. There are usually no symptoms associated with this deficiency, but there may be symptoms of mild blood loss in some cases. Treatment is generally unnecessary. Individuals should be cautioned against the use of medications (for example aspirin, warfarin, heparin) with anticoagulant activity, due to risk of exaggerated effects. (27 Sep 1997)
