Bernard-Soulier syndrome (BSS, named after Jean Bernard and Jean Pierre Soulier) is a genetic deficiency of glycoprotein Ib (GpIb), the receptor for von Willebrand factor that is important in clot formation. It presents as a bleeding disorder due to the inability of platelets to bind and aggregate at sites of vascular endothelial injury. A good website for more information is www.B-SS.org.
