PURPOSE: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used for evaluation of refractory joint swelling in a 7-year-old boy with hemophilia. PATIENT AND METHODS: This patient with no evidence of an inhibitory had refractory left knee swelling despite receiving appropriate factor VIII concentrate infusions. RESULTS: A plain radiograph showed soft tissue swelling and a calcification in the left suprapatellar region. On MRI a discrete suprapatellar pouch could be detected and was subsequently surgically resected. CONCLUSION: We believe that MRI should be considered when evaluating children with hemophilia who have refractory joint swelling and no evidence of an inhibitor.
