Combined deficiency of vitamin K-dependent clotting factors type 2
The disease with the acronyme VKCFD2 is characterized by an autosomal recessive combined deficiency of vitamin-k dependent coagulation factors (I, VII, IX, and X) which is caused by a mutations of subunit 1 vitamin K epoxide reductase complex (VKORC1) gene.
