Hemophilia as an underlying cause of ICH is still under recognized even in tertiary pediatric institutions and associated with diagnostic and management delays. Bleeding disorders may present during the neonatal period, however, absent patient history along with unique physical signs render any diagnosis difficult to establish. Haemophilia in the newborn period is challenging; it may present rarely as ICH with significant long term morbidity. Traumatic deliveries may lead to early presentation of haemophilia with specific types of extracranial and intracranial bleeds in newborn period. Therefore, an awareness of the natural history of neonatal haemophilia is crucial for early diagnosis and optimal management. We report a case of neonatal hemophilia a that presented with a rare presentation of subgaleal hematoma with uneventful vaginal delivery.
