Acute myocardial infarction complicating prothrombin complex concentrate therapy in an 8-year-old boy with hemophilia A and factor VIII inhibitor

, : Acute myocardial infarction complicating prothrombin complex concentrate therapy in an 8-year-old boy with hemophilia A and factor VIII inhibitor. American Journal of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology 15(4): 416-419

An 8-year-old boy with mild hemophilia A and inhibitors developed an acute myocardial infarction during treatment with prothrombin complex concentrates. This rare complication warrants restriction of dosage and length of treatment with these products to the recommended guidelines. It also appears that noninvasive cardiac monitoring of these patients is beneficial.
