Surgery in hemophilic patients is a challenge for the general surgeon. Hemophilic pseudotumor is a rare complication occurring in 1-2% of hemophiliacs and affecting mainly patients with severe disease or those who have developed antibodies to factor VIII or IX. A number of alternatives are available for the management of these tumors, including conservative treatment, surgical removal, percutaneous drainage, embolization, and external radiation. The only definitive treatment is surgical excision. We report a case of hemophilic pseudotumor of the pelvic bone. Treatment consisted of surgical resection after arterial embolization using factor replacement to achieve hemostasis.
