Abstract

• A patient with congenital afibrinogenemia underwent removal of an intracerebral hematoma following specific therapy with fibrinogen-containing concentrates. We believe the successful neurosurgical intervention in a life-threatening complication of this unusual coagulation disorder to be unique.
