Abstract

Low frequency of rare diseases origins from missed diagnosis addressing to poor prognosis. Acquired factor V inhibitor is a very low frequent bleeding condition (prevalence: 0.09/100,000,000-0.29/1,000,000 per year). Antibiotics, surgery, bacterial infections, malignancies, and autoimmune diseases are predisposing factors; however, no predisposing factor was found often. Authors reported a case of bleeding originating from an acquired factor V deficiency because they wish to draw attention to unfrequented or rare clinical situations rarely diagnosed in internal medicine unit.
