BACKGROUND: Female patients with undiagnosed von Willebrand's disease may present with heavy menorrhagia. This is a case report of a patient with undiagnosed von Willebrand's disease presenting with recurrent corpus hemorrhagicum. CASE: A nulliparous woman presented with her second episode of hemoperitoneum secondary to a ruptured corpus hemorrhagicum. CONCLUSION: Patients with recurrent corpus hemorrhagicum may be at risk for von Willebrand's disease even if no history of menorrhagia or bleeding disorder exists.
