Little is known about the challenging treatment of pediatric patients with hemophilia B and inhibitors due to disease rarity. We describe three patients diagnosed in childhood and followed up to 9 years. All three had allergic reactions to Factor IX, but two were later safely treated for bleeding episodes with activated prothrombin complex concentrates (APCC = FEIBA). The third was given only recombinant activated Factor VIIa. Based on ex vivo thrombin generation analysis, a new alternative treatment of combined bypassing agents was administered for bleeding episodes and several minor surgical procedures with no treatment-associated adverse events or thrombosis.

A deficiency of blood coagulation factor IX inherited as an X-linked disorder. (Also known as Christmas Disease, after the first patient studied in detail, not the holy day.) Historical and clinical features resemble those in classic hemophilia (HEMOPHILIA A), but patients present with fewer symptoms. Severity of bleeding is usually similar in members of a single family. Many patients are asymptomatic until the hemostatic system is stressed by surgery or trauma. Treatment is similar to that for hemophilia A. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1008)
