Congenital factor XI deficiency, called hemophilia C, is an autosomal recessive disorder. Bleeding complications are observed in 9.6% of surgeries on such patients. Herein, we presented the first report of a case of lung cancer with FXI deficiency. The patient safely underwent video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy after replenishment of coagulation factors via preoperative fresh frozen plasma transfusions prior to surgery.
