Partially calcified and expansile lesion within the left iliac crest involving the overlying iliopsoas muscle due to a haemophiliac pseudotumour.

Case Discussion

Hemophilic pseudotumour is uncommon and usually seen in severe cases of haemophilia. They form as a result of multiple episodes of hemorrhage into bones or soft tissue spaces. Compression of local structures can cause pain. Extraosseous lesions are associated with increased soft tissue swelling. Intraosseous lesions can result in pathological fractures 1.
