Abstract


Hemophilic arthropathy is characterized by chronic proliferative synovitis and cartilage destruction as a result of recurrent intra-articular bleeding. Hemophilic arthropathy can be seen in many joints such as knee, shoulder, hip and ankle. However, the information related to the sacroiliac joint involvement was not found in the accessible literature and electronic medium. In this article, unilateral sacroiliac joint involvement is presented in a patient with hemophilia for 15 years who developed severe destruction in bilateral knees and admitted to our outpatient clinic because of pain over hip region.
