In brief: Bleeding disorder

Normal blood clotting depends on cells (platelets) and a number of different proteins made in the liver. Someone who is deficient in either will develop a bleeding disorder which can become severe.
The causes are legion and include medications, infections, cirrhosis, uremia, congenital ( eg., hemophilia), autoimmune disorders, radiation, cancer and many others.
