A 47-year-old woman is reported who had a life-threatening, subarachnoideal bleeding due to the spontaneous development of factor VIII:C inhibitor. Cyclosporin combined with prednisone allowed a full recovery and the elimination of antibody even when other therapeutic facilities failed to be effective. Actual problems of treatment of factor VIII inhibitors are briefly surveyed.
