Children with haemophilia are at risk of suboptimal bone mass accrual and low bone mineral density (BMD). We recently demonstrated that although BMD in Finnish children with haemophilia was within the normal range, their whole body BMD was significantly lower and hypercalciuria more prevalent than in controls. This study sought to determine the bone structure and strength in physically active children with haemophilia. To investigate the underlying mechanisms in this group, we conducted a case… CONTINUE READING
