Abstract

Factor X deficiency is a rare bleeding disorder inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion. In severe cases with a definitive bleeding phenotype, prophylaxis with prothrombin complex concentrate appears to prevent bleeding very effectively. Management of factor X-deficient pregnant patients continues to be a challenge. We present a new case of successful twin pregnancy in a severe factor X-deficient patient.
