Abstract
This paper reports a case of factor VII deficiency, a very rare autosomal r ecessive disorder, in a primipara at 37 weeks of gestation in whom we admin istered prophylactic therapy with factor VII every 12 h until 24 h after de livery. The prophylactic use of factor VII enabled the woman to deliver wit hout hemorrhagic complications. Copyright (C) 2000 S. Karger AG, Basel.
