A 29-year-old parturient with congenital afibrinogenemia was scheduled to receive cesarean section at 38 weeks 2 days of gestation. Due to the bleeding tendency by her abnormality of fibrinogen and afibrinogenemia, general anesthesia was chosen. In addition to routine administration of fibrinogen, perioperative supplementation of fibrinogen with the meticulous evaluation of the coagulation and fibrinolysis status using rotation thromboelastometry (ROTEM®) enabled the patient to deliver a healthy baby without any hematological complications. The ROTEM® was a useful device to check coagulopathy and fibrinolysis in this patient.
