Surgical management of joint dislocation in a patient with hemophilia with an unremarkable medical history and a negative family history of hereditary diseases or hematological disorders is quite challenging. Due to its rare representation, the diagnosis can be delayed or even missed; therefore, frequent evaluations are necessary for early diagnosis and treatment. The treatment of such patients should be carried out on a comprehensive basis by a multidisciplinary team. No cases of joint dislocation secondary to hemophilia have been reported in the available English literature. In this report, we present a case of recurrent radial head dislocation following an open reduction and internal fixation of Monteggia fracture–dislocation in a patient with undiagnosed hemophilia. We describe its symptoms, signs, and investigations along with the surgical management. We present this case report and its management to increase the awareness of the possibility of this pathology and to avoid future misdiagnoses.
