Abstract

The prophylaxis and surgical treatment of hemophilioid disorders have improved greatly in recent years with the use of specific factor concentrates. With proliferation of home prophylactic programs in which factor VIII most often is used, the problem of treating bleeding in patients with hemophilia whose condition is complicated by the presence of inhibitors to factor VIII has become more common. Patients with inhibitors generally do not respond to infusion of factor-VIII concentrates. The purpose of this report is to present the case of a boy with classic hemophilia who had a high concentration of factor-VIII inhibitors, and in whom activated factor IX was used in the surgical treatment of an acute volar compartment syndrome in the forearm.
