Abstract: Acquired haemophilia A is a rare but important diagnosis, carrying a mortality rate of 22%. Life-threatening sequalae of this diagnosis includes airway compromise, which can rapidly lead to demise of the patient if left untreated. Our case examines an 80-year-old man presenting with a supraglottic haematoma resulting from acquired haemophilia A causing airway compromise and necessitating definitive airway control. A review of current understanding and management of the disease is also ddiscussed.
