Abstract

In patients with hemophilia, the usual treatment for both iliopsoas hematoma and associated femoral nerve compression is conservative. The case presented herein is a moderate hemophilia A patient with significant femoral neuropathy due to iliopsoas hematoma whose symptoms could not be managed with an aggressive factor VIII replacement program for >2 weeks. An unusual treatment option - percutaneous catheter insertion and aspiration of the hematoma - alleviated the examination findings and reversed his abilities.
