Immunoglobulin A (IgA) deficiency may result in the development of anti-IgA antibodies. Such antibodies may result in anaphylaxis when patients receive standard blood products. Hemophilia A is a deficiency of clotting factor VIII that results in a significant coagulopathy and bleeding in the perioperative period unless precautions are taken. We present a case of successful management of combined hemophilia A and IgA deficiency in a patient undergoing repeated sternotomy for aortic valve replacement.
