On 24 subjects suffering from Gilbert's icterus, the plasmatic activity of the single vitamin K dependent coagulation factors (II, VII, IX, X) was determined, and two global coagulation tests (the normotest and the prothrombin time), sensible to the activity variations of these factors, were carried out. There have not been any observable differences in comparison with the controls; therefore it is excluded that the Gilbert's syndrome presents a reduced plasmatic activity of the vitamin K dependent coagulation factors.
