Hmm....not really sure but if I have to choose, I will pick vitamin C. Deficiency in vitamin C decreases the activity of proline and lysine hidroxylase during collagen synthesis. Decreased collagen synthesis in blood vessels will increase susceptibility of bleeding due to minor injury.

Exactly.

Bleeding would account for this in Vit C deficiency only...

I think the Goljan audio made a note that it had be a good question to ask.

I think he asked: what vitamin deficiency can present with a complication of severe hemophilia A. He was talking in regards to haemathrosis.
