Abstract

The vast majority of bleeding episodes in hemophilia occur in the muscu loskeletal system. When bleeding occurs, within a closed compartment, the pos sibility of neurovascular compromise must be suspected. We present an interesting case where this danger was overlooked in a young hemophiliac boy and resulted in bone growth retardation and permanent deformity.
