The genetic disorders causing decreased fibrinogen synthesis may be caused by heterozygous (hypofibrinogenemia) or homozygous (afibrinogenemia) deficiency. The consequences of the disorders are gastrointestinal bleeding, cord bleeding, eccymoses, subcutaneous hematomas and hemarthroses especially due to traumatic delivery in the neonatal period. Laboratory evaluation of the patient with hypofibrinogenemia reveals prolongation of thrombin time, partial thromboplastin time, prothrombin time and decreased fibrinogen level. We report a 21 days old, congenital hypofibrinogenemia case with cord bleeding.

Keywords: Congenital hypofibrinogenemia, Cord bleeding, Newborn.
