Introduction: Bleeding disorders are usually a group of conditions that occur due to the inability of the blood to clot properly. Platelets are the blood cell fragments that are responsible for providing the base for coagulation. Since bleeding is a common symptom and it need not always indicate the presence of an underlying pathological condition. Identification of a bleeding disorder can be challenging, especially because clinical bleeding can be of varying severity. The application of molecular sciences has improved the diagnostic and treatment aspects of the disease. Even though knowledge of the clinical presentation, appropriate diagnostic measures, and therapeutic options of bleeding disorders have been problematic to attain, there has been progressing with more evidence-based information to control or treat the conditions. The last two decades have seen advanced and translational investigations that have improved the clinical management of the disorders.

Aim of the Work: The review aims to focus and highlight the latest advances in understanding, diagnosis and treatment of Bleeding disorders.

Methodology: The review is comprehensive research of PUBMED from the year 1976 to 2019.

Conclusion: The early detection of the potential hallmarks of the underlying disorder can help in early control and treatment of the severity of the disease. Adequate laboratory and hematological tests should be performed to provide an accurate picture of the disease so that the appropriate treatment strategy can be adapted. A definitive diagnosis of a bleeding disorder will require individualized long-term hemostatic management.
