We report a case of uncomplicated axillary catheter placed under ultrasound guidance in a patient with severe hemophilia. This catheter, inserted when the patient was fully substituted with factor VIII, was indicated for postoperative physiotherapy after elbow arthrolysis. Ultrasound control showed no local bleeding. Withdrawal was uneventful. Efficient analgesia allowed intensive elbow mobilization.
