Abstract
Haemoperitoneum secondary to haemorrhagic corpus luteum has been described in severe bleeding disorders such as afibrinogenaemia, type 3 von Willebran d's disease and patients under oral anticoagulation. We have studied one pa tient who presented three episodes of severe bleeding at ovulation, requiri ng surgery twice, with the diagnosis of mild von Willebrand's disease and m ild storage pool deficiency. Mild von Willebrand's disease (associated with other thrombopathies or coagulopathies) should be considered in this patho logy, although physicians would prefer to find a severe haemorrhagic disord er as the underlying condition in these cases.
