Our histological analysis revealed that iron was deposited in the extracellular matrix of the articular cartilage, which is consistent with our diagnosis of haemosiderosis. Interestingly, the hemosiderin in haemophilic arthropathy is derived from the phagocytosis of red blood cells after the formation of joint hematoma via intra-articular bleeding .
In this case, we conclude that the severe pigmentation and destruction of the articular cartilage (similar to that observed in ochronotic arthritis due to haemosiderosis) occurred after chronic haemarthrosis, despite the patient having no underlying disease, drug usage, or traumatic episode, which ultimately required total knee arthroplasty.

 The main goal of neocytes transfusion is reduction of numbers of required transfusion by extending the transfusion intervals to prevent incidence of transfusion related hazards and iron overload (Haemosiderosis
) and its sequel: growth failure, hypogonadism, diabetes mellitus, hepatic disease, cardiac failure and death.
