Hemophilia 

Hemophilia is a bleeding disorder that impairs natural blood clotting. Hemophilia can result in longer bleeding after an injury, easy bruising, and a higher risk of internal bleeding. Hemophilia is more likely to occur in males.


There are two types of Hemophilia:

  • Hemophilia A, also called “classic hemophilia,” is a genetic disorder caused by a missing or defective factor VIII clotting protein in the blood.
  • Hemophilia B, also called “Christmas Disease,” is caused by a missing factor IX clotting protein.


Common treatment involves replacing missing blood clotting factors with routine infusion of clotting factor medication. This may be done on a regular basis or during bleeding episodes. Replacement may take place at home or in the hospital.
