Abstract

Circumcision can be fatal in hemophilia patients unless they are treated with the missing coagulation factor. We describe 10 severe hemophilia patients in whom circumcision was performed with local fibrin glue instead of infusion of factor concentrate. Of the 10 patients 3 had postoperative bleeding and only 2 of them required infusion of factor VIII concentrate. Fibrin glue is a useful treatment modality for circumcision in patients with bleeding diathesis, and it is safer and cheaper than the infusion of factor concentrate.
