Acquired vs. Congenital Hemophilia
Diagnosis for patient with no previous history
High activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) that is unable to be corrected with a mixing study
Low Factor VIII level with evidence of inhibitor activity
DC is a 42 year old African American female with a diagnosis of chronic lymphocytic leukemia. She was first admitted on 10/24/14 for abdominal pain that had been going on for about a week. On 11/02/14 she was started on sulfasalazine by the GI doctor for enteritis with jejunal and ileal inflammation. DC was transferred to the ICU on 11/07/14 for an acute drop in her Hgb to 3.9 and bleeding from her PICC line. After transfusion with 2 units of PRBCs, her Hgb improved to 9.2.
Patient Case: DC
APTT was 159.1!
Factor VIII level was 0.1!
* FDA approved for Acquired Hemophilia
She was given 3 doses of 5,000 mcg NovoSeven RT every 2 hours with a modest response. After speaking with Pharmacy, Heme/Onc decided to try Kcentra 3,000units every 8 hours PRN.
With the chemotherapy, DC was given 1g of SoluMedrol and 1,300mg of Cytoxan. The next day on 11/11/14 she was given 650mg Rituxan.
