Introduction­and ­Objective: Hemophilic arthropathy (HA) is a com-mon complication in patients with hemophilia (PWH). Hemophilia Joint Health Score (HJHS) was a sensitive score to evaluate joint health of PWH. We aimed to investigate joint outcomes of PWH in Taiwan by HJHS and the clinical predictors.Materials­ and ­ Methods: Taiwan Society of Thrombosis and Hemostasis initiated a nationwide multicenter survey in Taiwan. From 2015 to 2016, 135 PWH (103 hemophilia A, 32 hemophilia B) were enrolled for joint evaluations with HJHS version 2.1. Among them, 89 PWH also had the roentgenograms of elbows, knees, and ankles for calculating Pettersson scores (PS).
