- PreviewThe purpose of this study was to raise awareness and recommend management of a rare but morbid complication following knee arthroscopy: recurrent hemarthrosis in the setting of previously undiagnosed hemophilia. A 17-year-old male without prior personal or family history of bleeding disorders underwent an uneventful partial lateral meniscectomy and had several subsequent episodes of hemarthrosis beginning 10 days after surgery. This study helps to elucidate a strategy for diagnosis and management of this uncommon but morbid complication.
