Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report the case of a 38-year-old female patient with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) who developed acquired hemophilia caused by factor VIII (FVIII) inhibitors. She manifested spontaneous bleeding symptoms such as ecchymoses and hematuria. Laboratory findings showed an isolated prolongation of the activated partial thromboplastin time, reduced FVIII activity, and a high titer of FVIII inhibitors. She was successfully treated with oral predonisolone and cyclosporine in combination with steroid and cyclophosphamide pulse therapy.
