Haemophilia is a inherited and lifelong blood disorder where an essential blood clotting factor is either party or completely missing. It occurs in all racial groups and affects about 1 in 10,000 of the male population.
Haemophilia is passed from parent to child it cannot be caught.
Men with haemophilia pass the gene that has messages for haemophilia on to their daughters,but not their sons
These daughters blood usually clots normally though they carry the gene for Haemophilia in their blood they are called “carriers”
When these daughters have babies, they may pass
haemophilia on to some of their children. Affected
girls will be carriers of the haemophilia gene, like
them. Affected boys will have haemophilia.
If a person has a small amount of factor VIII or
factor IX, his haemophilia is moderate. He will
most likely bleed less often than a person with
severe haemophilia, and usually following an
If a person’s factor VIII or factor IX level is just a
bit higher than in moderate haemophilia, but still
below the level needed for a good clot, his
haemophilia is mild. Unusual bleeding will only
happen when people like this have a tooth taken out
or when they have an operation or a big accident.
All people with haemophilia must see a
haemophilia healthcare worker if they need to have
a tooth taken out or have an operation, or
if they have a big accident.
A person with haemophilia is born with it and has it all his life.
The amount of factor VIII or IX in his blood usually stays the same throughout his life.
Once a child is an adult, he will usually bleed less often.
Missing clotting factor can be put into the blood
through a needle in the person’s vein.
This added clotting factor only lasts for a short time.
If a person has treatment during the morning, it may
not be working any more by the evening.
