von Willebrand's Disease (vWD) is an autosomal dominant inherited bleeding disorder that occurs from birth and affects both sexes. It occurs due to a defect in the genes. Autosomal dominant means that even if one parent has the abnormal gene, you could inherit the disease. vWD has a prevalence of 1 to 3% of the population and has no ethnic predominance. The disease was first described by Erik Adolf von Willebrand in 1926.
