This unique book covers the major cases one might encounter in diagnosing, managing and treating haemophilia. It will provide a practical and informative guide to the broad range of topics concerning both bleeding and clotting disorders.

Haemophilia and Haemostasis: A Case-based Approach to Management is divided into major chapter sections by disorder. Each chapter contains questions and cases that were originally submitted to the online Haemostasis-forum (previously Haemophilia-forum). Cases and questions associated with each disorder are presented alongside practical answers from a wide range of international contributors.

Practical, clinical questions, answered by the world's leading experts


  • All case studies gathered from the Archives of the Haemostasis/Haemophilia Forum – 1997-2006
  • Covers haemophilia, Von Willebrand Disease and many other bleeding and clotting disorders
  • Over 80 case studies with practical answers
  • To reflect varying practice, controversial areas will be clearly marked and discussed throughout

Whether you are a practising clinician or trainee in haematology, working in the fields of coagulation, haemostasis or thrombosis, or any other health care professional working in a haemophilia centre, this book will provide practical clinical answers to aid in your day to day patient care.
