Spontaneous deep vein thrombosis in hemophilia A: a case report.
Venous thromboembolus is an important cause of hospital acquired morbidity and mortality. Venous thrombosis is a very rare occurrence in patients with haemophilia A. The thrombosis originated from the right main and external iliac veins, and effects the cranial segments of the main, deep and superficial femoral veins as an acute phase thrombus. Neither any local anatomic compression nor any predisposing thrombophilic risk factors were identified. We treated the patient with enoxaparine 1 mg/kg twice a day subcutaneously and then started oral anticoagulation with warfarin.
