In patients with hemophilia, hematomas in the mesentery and bowel wall have been described uncommonly. The lesser sac is a rare site of spontaneous hemorrhage even in patients with bleeding diathesis; only a single case of isolated lesser sac hemorrhage has been reported in a hemophiliac patient. We report a similar case with no history of trauma. He recovered with administration of factor VIII concentrate.
