Radiographic Findings in Hemophilia



- Discussion:
    - radiographs of knee hemarthrosis, may show the capsule in distension;
    - synovitis, cartilage thinning, widening and ersion of intercondylar notch;
    - enlargement of ossification centers, esp distal end of femur;
    - hemorrhage can displace periosteum to such extent that huge soft tissue mass results called hemophiliac pseudotumor;
    - widening of distal femoral epiphysis, squaring of inferior pole of patella, flattening of distal femoral condyles and widening of intercondylar notch
