Spontaneous hematomas and isolated prolongation of aPTT



Spontaneous hematomas and isolated prolongation of aPTT



Praxis 100(10): 603-606



We report a case of a 64 year old woman with spontaneous hematomas. A prior history of bleeding disorder was not known up to now. The result of investigation of coagulation was an isolated prolonged aPTT that was caused by an inhibitor of factor VIII without underlying disease (idiopathic acquired hemophilia A). Therapy with steroids and cyclophosphamid resulted in partial remission.
