Surgical procedures in hemophiliacs is a demanding challenge for the surgeon and hematologist. This report deals with a successful laparoscopic cholecystectomy in a young patient with hemophilia B. Despite a prolonged operation time, because of a partially intrahepatic gallbladder, no bleeding complications were registered and the patient recovered well. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy seems to be the method of choice in hemophiliacs, as it minimizes tissue trauma. Nevertheless, the procedure should be performed only in specialized centers with a fully equipped coagulation laboratory and a team of surgeons and hematologists familiar with the special problems of surgery in hemophiliacs.
