What Is Hemophilia?

Hemophilia (heem-o-FILL-ee-ah) is a rare bleeding disorder in which your blood doesn't clot normally.

If you have hemophilia, you may bleed for a longer time than others after an injury. You also may bleed internally, especially in your knees, ankles, and elbows. This bleeding can damage your organs or tissues and may be life threatening.

Symptoms include
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Excessive bruising
  • Easy bleeding
  • Nose bleeds
  • Abnormal menstrual bleeding
Bleeding disorder risks include
  • Scarring of the joints or joint disease
  • Vision loss from bleeding into the eye
  • Chronic anemia from blood loss
  • Neurologic or psychiatric problems
  • Death, which may occur with large amounts of blood loss or bleeding in critical areas, such as the brain
Outlook

Hemophilia can be mild, moderate, or severe, depending on how much clotting factor is in the blood. About 7 out of 10 people who have hemophilia A have the severe form of the disorder.

People who don't have hemophilia have a factor VIII activity of 100 percent; people who have severe hemophilia A have a factor VIII activity of less than 1 percent.

About 18,000 people in the United States have hemophilia. Each year, about 400 babies are born with the disorder. Hemophilia usually occurs only in males (with very rare exceptions).


What is the National Hemophilia Foundation?

The National Hemophilia Foundation is dedicated to finding better treatments and cures for bleeding and clotting disorders and to preventing the complications of these disorders through education, advocacy and research. Many of the local chapters are involved in educating children and teaching them how to successfully manage their disease.
