Haemophilia A is a bleeding disorder that has a spectrum of manifestations ranging from persistent bleeding after minor trauma to spontaneous haemorrhage. [1] We report a case of a male patient with haemophilia A, who received general anesthesia for exploration of right hernial sac. Shortly before surgery he received 2500 units of factor VIII. There was no excessive blood loss intraoperatively. Postoperatively the patient was supplemented with factor VIII. Rest of the postoperative course was uneventful. The literature on the management of patient with haemophilia A is reviewed and considerations are presented concerning preoperative preparation and anaesthetic management of haemophiliac patient for minor and major surgery.
