Core Tip Whether we should perform fasciotomy for compartment syndrome caused by acquired hemophilia is unclear. A 75-year-old woman admitted with severe pain of the right forearm was diagnosed as having compartment syndrome, and fasciotomy was performed. Laboratory data showed acquired hemophilia A. Though recombinant activated clotting factor VII (rFVIIa) was administered, transfused red blood cells reached 46 units, and the cost of the clotting factor was 28834600 yen. Final hand function was good, but life-threatening bleeding and the high cost of treatment were serious problems. Preparation for sufficient blood transfusion, preoperative administration of rFVIIa, and prompt fasciotomy could be ideal.
