Gas gangrene in a patient with severe haemophilia A



Gas gangrene in a patient with severe haemophilia A



Haemophilia 5(6): 450-452



The haemophilia patient tends to live a more protected life than his normal counterpart, this is particularly so in underdeveloped and developing countries where due to poor health infrastructure, financial constraints and nonavailability of factor concentrates, patients quickly learn that they need to live a protected life. Under such circumstances, gas gangrene seems to be a very unusual infection for this group of patients. We report here a 25-year-old male with severe haemophilia who developed gas gangrene due to inadequate medical management following a road traffic accident. Subsequently, his affected limb was salvaged by conservative therapy. A literature search failed to reveal any reports of similar patients in the English literature.
