Prominent forehead hematomas, "goose-eggs," may suggest an underlying disorder of coagulation. We reviewed records of 324 children with hemophilia and confirmed that a goose-egg was the presenting feature leading to a diagnosis of hemophilia in 14 of them. Primary care providers should be aware of this unique presentation of hemophilia.
