Hemophilia is a genetically determined bleeding disorder, which, if not properly managed, can cause lifelong disabilities. Hemorrhages in the joints and soft tissues are largely studied. On the other hand, there is limited literature investigating renal dysfunction for these disorders. Hematuria is a recognized complication of hemophilia. While it is generally considered benign, hematuria can lead to chronic renal damage. We report the case of a 12 year-old male affected by hemophilia B, who was evaluated for gross hematuria. A literature review is also included where we identify some unanswered questions.
