AbstractWe present a case in which a 28-year-old pregnant woman (para 1) was suspected to have inherited factor VII (FVII) deficiency following investigation for recurrent mild easy bruising. However, this was ruled out by identification of a rare FVII variant not associated with an increased bleeding risk. This allowed usual obstetric care to proceed without any restrictions, facilitating an uncomplicated spontaneous vaginal delivery at term.
