The term “hemarthrosis” refers to a condition that results from bleeding into a joint cavity. Any joint (typically knees, ankles, and elbows, but it can also occur in the hip, shoulders, and wrists) that has “recurring hemarthrosis” episodes is known as a “target joint,” which is defined as having about four separate bleeds in the same joint over a six-month period. A target joint can also be caused by one severe bleed. The initial symptoms of hemarthrosis, which is a common complication of hemophilia, include warmth, swelling, and tingling. Because bleeding in the joint destroys the cartilage, it is important to get a prompt diagnosis and treatment. Physical therapy, either after or as an alternative to surgery, should be considered.
