Haemophilic pseudotumour or haemophilic cyst is a rare complication of haemophilia, occurring in one to two per cent of individuals with a severe factor VIII or IX deficiency. We report a case of a haemophilic pseudotumour in a hitherto unreported site, the bony nasal pyramid, and believe this case is also unique on account of it having occurred in a patient with mild haemophilia. The diagnosis and treatment of this rare condition is also reviewed.
