What are the symptoms of hemorrhagic disease?

Symptoms may include:

  • blood in your baby's bowel movements
  • blood in urine
  • oozing around the umbilical cord

In addition to a complete medical history and physical examination, a diagnosis is based on the signs of bleeding and by laboratory tests for blood clotting times.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
