Abstract

Acquired hemophilia A is a rare disease. It is caused by the acquirement of factor VIII inhibitor. We report a case of acquired hemophilia A incidentally diagnosed on bleeding after tooth extraction. A 75-yearold woman referred to our hospital because of bleeding after tooth extraction. Hematological examination revealed a prolonged activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) and decreased coagulation activity of factor VIII. In addition, a high level of factor VIII inhibitor was detected. Therefore, our patient was given a diagnosis of acquired hemophilia A. The patient was admitted to our hospital and received corticosteroids and bypass hemostasis using recombinant coagulation factor VII. On hospital day 42, APTT and factor VIII activity returned to the normal range. Moreover, factor VIII inhibitor disappeared. The patient was discharged and is being treated at a local general hospital.
