The term hemarthrosis refers to a joint disease caused by repeated and persistent bleeding.

It often affects patients who suffer from a hereditary disorder of blood clotting ( haemophilia ), so " bleeding " ("haemophilia"). With this disease, severe, bloody joint effusions occur again and again, even on unimportant occasions. These lead to an expansion of the joint capsule and scarring of the joint interior. These so-called "blood joints" quickly develop severe arthrosis at a young age .
