ABSTRACT
This case report is a treatment of patient with hemophilia A and autism. The patient's chief complaint was treatment of dental caries on entire dentition and he has an impacted mesiodens located on the apex of the upper right primary central incisor. The patient was consulted with pediatrician and anesthetist about the detailed discussion of the complexities of hemorrhagic disorder. Because he had some problems of behavior management and bleeding, the treatment was done under the gerneral anesthesia. The following results were obtained. 1. Consult with the patient's physician and hematologist about the replacement therapy and bleeding tendency. 2. For the severe hemophiliac child who requires extensive or surgical treatment, general anesthesia may be indicated for the comprehensive care. 3. For the hemophiliac child who has a behavior management problem due to autism and other defects, general anesthesia may be considerable. 4. Care must be taken during dental procedures not to causing a bleeding. 5. Local hemostatic methods must be acquired for the emergency state. 6. Neve prescribe aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen, indomethacin, and phenylbutazone. These drugs affect platelet aggregation and exaggerate the bleeding defect. 7. Do not be afraid of hemophiliac patient, and never compromise quality of dental care.
