Left paranasal hemophilic pseudotumor in a 5-year-old boy: A case report
Hemophilic pseudotumors are rare complications of hemophilia that are seen in 1-2% of patients commonly affecting patients with severe disease. Hemophilic pseudotumors occur as a result of recurrent poorly managed or untreated bleeding either in the soft tissue or bone. We report a 5-year-old boy with a previously undiagnosed hemophilia A who developed left paranasal swelling following a fall from a height. He was diagnosed with hemophilic pseudotumor and successfully managed conservatively with factor VIII replacement.
