The vast majority of bleeding episodes in hemophilia occur in the musculoskeletal system. When bleeding occurs, within a closed compartment, the possibility of neurovascular compromise must be suspected. We present an interesting case where this danger was overlooked in a young hemophiliac boy and resulted in bone growth retardation and permanent deformity.

    The authors reflect on how early muscoloskeletal health should be started. They point out the increasing evidence indicating how early life exposures can impact later musculoskeletal health, such as growth patterns before birth and in childhood, leading to sarcopenia and frailty in later life....
