Abstract

Hemarthrosis of extremity joints in patients with hemophilia has been well documented. However, hemarthrosis of the temporomandibular joint in patients with coagulopathies appears to be rare. Consequently, management of a temporomandibular joint hemarthrosis is difficult because of the lack of treatment guidelines. The purpose of this article is to review the pathophysiology of hemophilic arthropathy and its management. A case of temporomandibular joint hemophilic arthropathy in a patient with a factor XI deficiency will be presented. A brief review of factor XI deficiency and a hypothetical pathophysiological mechanism for internal derangement induced by myofascial pain dysfunction are included.
