Özet

Glanzmann's thrombasthenia (GT) is a very rare autosomal recessive genetic bleeding disorder. Women with coagulation abnormalities are at increased risk of corpus luteum rupture and haemoperitoneum. Here we present a severe case of GT resulting in a haematoma extending from the pelvis to the liver that could only be controlled by surgery and intra-abdominal tranexamic acid. Copyright (c) 2012 S.
