Life expectancy and quality of patients affected by haemophilia have dramatically improved during the last years.
Different important clinical problems arise from this change in the natural history of haemophilic patients. In particular, aging-related diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, cancer and chronic infections are emerging as new challenges in this patient population. Among chronic illness, renal diseases are of particular interest, since they implicate some issues of difficult clinical management. Here, we present a case of a patient affected by a severe form of haemophilia A, who presented advanced renal disease requiring the initiation of renal replacement therapy. This case offers us the possibility to examine the major issues regarding the management of dialysis treatment in haemophilic patients.
