Özet

Activated recombinant factor VIIa was administered to a preterm infant with bleeding diasthesis and a huge subdural hematoma that could not be controlled by the blood products. The coagulation tests were normalized the following day. Recombinant factor VIIa can be a choice in selected cases with intractable bleedings unesponsive to conventional replacement therapy.
