Recurrent hemarthrosis is a common entity in children. Although recurrent hemarthrosis most often associated with hemophilia (VIII or IX deficiency), but rarely it can be associated with factor VII deficiency (FVIID). It is a strong mimicker of hemophilic hemarthrosis. Once hemophilia is excluded as a cause of recurrent hemarthrosis, congenital FVIID needs to be considered for long-term planning of treatment and avoiding unnecessary transfusion of factor concentrates. Clinical presentation of FVIID has a varied spectrum and does not correlate with factor levels. Here, we present a case of recurrent hemarthrosis secondary to FVIID.
