Abstract

Abstract The occurrence of hemorrhagic effusion into the knee joint due to xanthoma is very uncommon. In a review of the literature only five cases have been reported. In view of the extreme rarity of this condition we are reporting the following case. REPORT OF CASE History. —W. M., aged 23, white, American born, a garage hand, was admitted to the service of Dr. Harry Finkelstein, Hospital for Joint Diseases, New York, on March 7, 1932, suffering from a painful swelling of the left knee, which had increased in size during the past two years. There was no history of trauma.He had had occasional pain in the shoulders since the age of 13. He had gonorrhea in 1930, for which he received treatment and was discharged as cured. Appendectomy was performed in 1920. His parents and one brother and sister were in good health. There was no family history of References 1.
