Abstract

Pseudotumours are a rare, severe complication of haemophilia which can occur in a spectrum of bones and soft tissues. It consists of an encapsulated blood collection, and as the swelling increases causes compression and eventual slow destruction of surrounding structures. Presented here are two cases of patients with haemophilia and pseudotumours, which demonstrate the heterogeneity of presenting symptoms and of treatment options.
