Inherited bleeding disorders contribute significantly to the incidence and prevalence of Heavy Menstrual Bleeding (HMB), and contrary to popular belief can present any time during the reproductive years of a woman's life. The following case exemplifies this and is being presented as part of a rare syndrome. The incidence of this syndrome in the general population ranges from 1:500,000 to 1:1000, 000. Besides being rare the presentation was quite uncommon as majority of these cases present with pulmonary fibrosis.
