Our February, 2021 Quick Question was a case study that drew 60 responses. A 25-YO woman who is 1 month post-partum experiences bruising and menorrhagia. She reports that her mother and brother both experience easy bruising and that her own bruising disappeared during her pregnancy. What condition could cause these symptoms? Acquired hemophilia: 12% [7] Von Willebrand disease: 63% [38] Congenital hemophilia A: 15% [9] Disseminated intravascular coagulation: 10% [6]

From Cemalettin Ulusoy, MD, Clinical Laboratory Specialist: I am setting up a hemostasis unit in the central laboratory of public hospitals in Istanbul, Turkey. As it is a rare disorder, I have not been able to get satisfying information on factor VII inhibitor screening [Bethesda-based method].
