Abstract

Haemophilia is the oldest known rare genetic bleeding disorder that disrupts the blood clotting process. Although the level of haemophilia care has improved substantially, the problems of management in developing countries are poor awareness, high costs of treatment, inadequate diagnostic and coagulation screening facilities and scarce factor concentrates for therapy. We present here the problems in the perioperative management of a case of haemophilia A in India. It portrays the current picture of haemophilia management in many developing countries around the world.
