Interestingly, one may postulate that the low FVIII in our patient of 17% is in favor of bleeding tendency; however, the occurrence of DVT in the setting of low systemic level of FVIII may suggest the strong hypercoagulability potential of heterozygous prothrombin G20210A mutation or, on the other hand, might suggest the hypothesis of FVIII administration as a predisposing factor for local thromboembolism development in hemophilia A patients.
