We report a case of severe factor V (FV) deficiency (<1%) associated with multiple episodes of intracranial bleeding which presented at birth. The clinical course was further complicated by the development of an inhibitor, episodes of sepsis and cardiac failure. The management using virally inactivated FFP and platelets is discussed.
