We identified five disease-causing mutations in six factor XIII deficient patients from four unrelated families: two novel nonsense mutations (nucleotide 979G→T corresponding to Arg326Stop; and nucleotide 2075G→A corresponding to Trp691 Stop), one novel deletion of a single nucleotide (nucleotide 708G or 709G), one previously reported missense mutation (nucleotide 888G→G corresponding to Ser295Arg), and a previously reported splice site mutation (nucleotide 319G→T at the last position of exon 3). The phenotypic consequences of these mutations are discussed.
