    Abstract

    Two cases of haemorrhagic diathesis are described, where the laboratory diagnosis was confused owing to previous blood transfusions.

    Without the help of investigating the relatives, the nephew of Case 1, the haemophiliac, and the uncle of Case 2, with Christmas disease, there would have been considerable delay in reaching the diagnosis and so instituting the correct treatment.
