Papillary thyroid cancer in a child with hemophilia A

Thyroid cancer in a child with hemophilia A



Hemophilia A, Child, Papillary thyroid cancer


Hemophilia A is a hereditary hemorrhagic disorder associated with bleeding episodes and characterized by deficiency or dysfunction of coagulation protein factor VIII. Cancer incidence was found to increase in hemophilic patients. A case of a 6-year-old boy with papillary thyroid cancer and hemophilia who underwent a successful total thyroidectomy and bilateral modified radical lymph node dissection with appropriate peri-operative management consisting of Factor VIII replacement is presented.
