Bernard–Soulier syndrome (BSS) is a rare autosomal recessive disease with bleeding diathesis due to platelet dysfunction secondary to the absence of the von Willebrand factor receptor on the platelet surface called glycoprotein Ib–V–IX. The deficiency results in prolonged bleeding time and spontaneous bleeds and may be with high risk for anesthesia and surgery. Here, we report a case of BSS coming for trabeculectomy.
