A case of severe cutaneous haemorrhage due to thrombocytopenia in combination with an acquired haemophilia A is reported. The thrombocytopenia was due to acute myelomonocytic leukaemia (FAB M4). A factor VIII:C specific anticoagulant was also found. Chemotherapy led to complete remission with normal blood counts and coagulation-test results.
