Isolated vocal cord hematoma in a child with severe factor VIII deficiency.

Journal Article

We have reported the first case of isolated submucosal hematoma of the true vocal cord in a hemophilic patient. He was managed with factor VIII replacement therapy as an outpatient for five consecutive days, without complication. Similar but more serious cases usually require more aggressive intervention by the pediatrician and the otolaryngologist.
