TO THE EDITOR:
Background: While congenital von Willebrand disease is common (1% of the population), its acquired form is relatively rare and accounts for only up to 5% of patients with clinical von Willebrand disease (1). It usually occurs in elderly patients who often present with sudden-onset mucocutaneous bleeding. Bleeding can be life-threatening, and various therapies have been used.
