Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Female patients with undiagnosed von Willebrand's disease may present with heavy menorrhagia. This is a case report of a patient with undiagnosed von Willebrand's disease presenting with recurrent corpus hemorrhagicum.

CASE:

A nulliparous woman presented with her second episode of hemoperitoneum secondary to a ruptured corpus hemorrhagicum.

CONCLUSION:

Patients with recurrent corpus hemorrhagicum may be at risk for von Willebrand's disease even if no history of menorrhagia or bleeding disorder exists.
