Thrombocytopenia of the type found in idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura is described in a family with a deficiency of antihaemophilic factor, and a capillary abnormality. The propositus (father) has thrombocytopenia and abnormal platelet morphology, together with a plasma deficiency of antihaemophilic factor, but normal capillaries. His two daughters each are deficient in antihaemophilic factor with normal platelets but abnormal capillaries.

"Religious" stigmata describe body marks and sores that reflect the crucifixion wounds of Christ (hands and wrists, feet, flank, back, shoulders, forehead) and which are transferred to an individual through fervent prayer. "Non-religious" stigmata usually describe spontaneous episodes of bleeding with no identifiable cause outside any religious context. Irrespective of the setting in which they occur, such lesions are extremely striking.
