Spontaneous Intra-abdominal Hemorrhage in a Hemophilia A Patient Masquerading as Intra-abdominal Pseudotumor
Spontaneous intra-abdominal hemorrhage is very rare in hemophilia A patients. High index of suspicion is necessary for successful management. Surgical intervention may be required in cases of diagnostic uncertainty and for adequate hemostasis. Here we report a case of spontaneous hemorrhage in the peritoneal cavity in hemophilia A patient, who was managed with surgery and factor VIII supplementation. Patient did well in the postoperative periods.
