Congenital afibrinogenemia is a very rare inherited coagulation disorder, characterized by virtual absence of plasma fibrinogen (factor I). There are only about 250 cases reported in the world literature . We describe a case of congenital afibrinogenemia which presented as an antenatally detected intracranial bleed. © 2010 Hariharan et al.
