Background : Circumcision is one of the most common surgery in boys, especially in the moslem community. There is a situation where doctors tend to avoid this procedure due to bleeding problems. In 2007 we developed the protocols of anti-hemophilic factor (AHF) administration for circumcision in people with hemophilia (PWH) namely “Yogyakarta method”. This study was aimed to evaluate the outcomes of this protocol. Material : This was a retrospective study based on medical record of PWH who underwent circumcision in Dr. Sardjito Hospital, Yogyakarta (DSH) and 3 surrounding hospitals under supervision from DSH during 2007-2017. The diagnosis of hemophilia were based on clinical findings and factor assay. PWHs were received 2 doses of factor VIII 25 IU/kg in hemophilia A or factor IX 50 U/kg in hemophilia B, each plus tranexamic acid 15 mg/kg at 30 minutes before and during circumcision. The same doses were administered every 12 hours and 24 hours in hemophilia A and B, respectively, after circumcision till the wound perfectly recovered. Circumcision was performed by pediatric surgeon or urologist. Informed consent was obtained from parents. Results : Of 33 circumcisions, 12 were done in DSH, 16 in Airforce Hospital, 2 in district hospital of Kebumen and 3 PWH in Purworejo District Hospital. PWH with hemophilia A were 31 (94%) and hemophilia B 2 (6%) patients. The severity were mild in 10 (30,3%), moderate 15 (45,5%), and severe 8 (24,2%). Median age at procedure was 12 (6-29) years. Mean of AHF consumption was 202 ± 18 U/kg with median length of stay was 4 (1-11) days. No serious bleeding were found during and after circumcision in all PWHs. No other complications were found. Conclusions : The Yogyakarta method were safe and sufficient to control the bleeding in circumcision of PWHs. This method is also suitable for district hospital setting
