Bilateral Hemophilic Pseudotumors of the Calcaneus and Cuboid Treated by Irradiation: CASE REPORT.

Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery - American Volume: April 1965
Case Report

A case is presented in which bilateral pseudotumors of the calcaneus and cuboid in an eleven-year-old boy with apparent classic hemophilia responded promptly to deep x-ray therapy with relief of pain and subsequent disappearance of the tumors without recurrence for two years and eight months after treatment.

Although previous reports on the effects of radiotherapy for pseudotumors have been conflicting, the results in this case were dramatic.
