Abstract

Haemophilic arthropathy of the elbow is a rare cause of elbow pain in children and adolescents. The purpose of this study is to determine the MR appearance of the spectrum of lesions found in haemophilic arthropathy of the elbow at initial MR imaging. It is important to be aware of the early changes in this entity, since early diagnosis and treatment of the disease may prevent progressive joint destruction.
