Brief Summary:
The aim of this observational study is to evaluate the quality of life in patients with congenital afibrinogenemia using the Haemo-QoL SF for kids and the Haem-A-QoL for adult patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Afibrinogenemia, Congenital Other: Questionnaire quality of life

Detailed Description:
In this observational study, children and adults suffering from congenital afibrinogenemia confirmed by biology will be enrolled. All patients will receive a questionnaire on quality of life in their own language during a routine visit and filled out by the patient at home. A general questionnaire will be filled out by the patient's physician.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Afibrinogenemia Other: Questionnaire quality of life

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The influence of the afibrinogenemia on the patients' quality of life assessed by the Haemo-QoL SF questionnaire (for children) and the Haem-A-QoL questionnaire (for adult) [ Time Frame: At inclusion ]

    The quality of life questionnaire includes item assessing:

    • Physical health
    • Feeling
    • View
    • Family
    • Friends
    • Others
    • Sport and school
    • Treatment
    • Perceived support
    • Dealing
    • Future
    • Relationship

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Impact of the afibrinogenemic patient's clinical phenotype on the patients' quality of life [ Time Frame: At Inclusion ]

    The clinical phenotype will be assessed by a general questionnaire including data on:

    • Bleeding events
    • Bleeding events treatment
    • Thrombotic events
    • Thrombotic events treatment
    • Fibrinogen replacement (type of product and modality of replacement)
