Acquired haemophilia is a severe haematological disorder characterised by the presence of anti-factor VIII antibodies. Although rare, it can lead to serious bleeding complications. Acquired haemophilia can be seen in patients with malignancies as a paraneoplastic phenomenon. This is a case of a 52-year-old patient who presented with haematuria and retroperitoneal bleeding soon after being diagnosed with pancreatic adenocarcinoma and subsequently was found to have acquired haemophilia. The treatment of underlying malignancy with chemotherapy may accelerate the eradication of anti-factor VIII antibodies.
