In brief: Bleeding disorder

Von willebrand disease is a condition that can cause extended or excessive bleeding.
The cause of von willebrand disease is a deficiency in or impairment of a protein called von willebrand factor, an important component in your blood-clotting process. In general, it takes longer for people with von willebrand disease to form clots and stop bleeding when they're cut.
