    A new case of combined factor V-VIII deficiency is reported with in vitro studies of factors V and VIII activation by thrombin. The normal activation of factors V and VIII demonstrated in the patient's plasma and the equivalent levels of factor VIII coagulant activity and coagulant antigen support the hypothesis that a quantitative rather than qualitative defect in factors V and VIII is present in this disorder.
