Hemorrhagic manifestations in patients with celiac disease are uncommon and, when present, are usually due to a deficiency of the vitamin K-dependent clotting factors. A patient with celiac disease was seen with a severe bleeding diathesis associated with deficiencies of factor V. The deficiencies of vitamin K-dependent clotting factors were rapidly reversed with parenteral administration of phytonadione. Factor V levels returned to normal levels only after gluten restriction.Hemorrhagic manifestations in patients with celiac disease are uncommon and, when present, are usually due to a deficiency of the vitamin K-dependent clotting factors.
