Platelet adhesiveness and aggregation were studied in two patients with congenital factor XI deficiency and in a patient with congenital factor XII deficiency. A normal aggregation pattern was observed in every instance, regardless of the aggregating agent. The same was true for platelet adhesiveness. It is concluded that the factor XI and factor XII play no role in platelet aggregation and adhesiveness.
