Hemophilic pseudotumor (PT) is a very rare complication of hemophilia consisting of a chronic, encapsulated, hemorrhagic fluid collection occurring both in the soft tissues and/or bone. Radiological features of osseous hemophilic PT are nonspecific and mimic several other benign or malignant bone tumors or infectious processes. Although the diagnosis is usually made on the location of the lesion and by the knowledge of the underlying disease, the radiologist should be aware of the imaging characteristics, in order to avoid misinterpretation as a malignant tumor, as biopsy of these lesions is contraindicated.
