What is Haemophilia
Haemophilia usually affects males. In fact, one out of every 10,000 males are born with haemophilia A. Worldwide, an estimated 500,000 people live with some form of haemophilia.
Haemophilia is a blood disorder that prevents blood from clotting properly, leading to uncontrolled bleeding. Haemophilia is actually a combination of different genetic disorders passed on by heredity. Bleeding is common into joints such as knees, ankles and elbows. This may be caused by injury, but in severe haemophilia, can begin spontaneously. Less commonly, bleeding into muscles or internal organs can occur. The two most common types are haemophilia A and haemophilia B.
Other hereditary haemophilia disorders may affect other blood clotting factors, but they occur rarely. The most common of these rare disorders, haemophilia C, only occurs in 1 out of every 100,000 births. However, the condition is more common in the Ashkenazi Jewish community. Haemophilia C affects factor XI proteins and is unusual in that it affects both males and females.
