Welcome to the new case for the week. Please read the case, consider the questions posed and share your thoughts via twitter using #teamhaem @teamhaem.
Lauren is a 34 year old woman who contacted her GP when she developed some easy bruising. She had noticed bruises on her arms and shins that were several centimetres across without recalling any real injury. She denies having had this problem until now, but says her sister is also an easy bruiser.
What other information would you want from Lauren?
