Abstract

Hemophilia is a congenital disorder characterized by prolonged bleeding, many times in association with little or no trauma, in which proper treatment may save lives or prevent permanent sequelae. We report an illustrative case and review the management of common problems with which a hemophiliac might present to the emergency department.
