Hemophilia is an inherited bleeding disorder in which the blood does not clot properly. There are two types of hemophilia both of which are caused by different mutations on the X chromosome. Hemophilia A is caused by a lack or decrease in factor VIII, a specialized blood protein necessary for blood clotting. People with this disorder experience prolonged bleeding or oozing following an injury, surgery, or having a tooth pulled; internally bleeding often occurs in the muscles and joints. The disorder can be severe, moderate or mild, with 50-60% of people having the severe form of the disease. The disease is more common in males, and affects people from all racial and ethnic backgrounds. Hemophilia A is also called classic hemophilia or Factor VIII deficiency hemophilia and is four times as common as hemophilia B. Hemophilia B is caused by a lack or decrease in factor IX, which is needed for blood clotting. Individuals with Hemophilia B tend to bleed longer not faster than unaffected individuals, with bleeding often occurring in the muscles and joints. The disorder can be severe, moderate or mild based on the activity level of factor IX. Hemophilia B is also called Christmas Disease or Factor IX deficiency. There is an unusual form known as Hemophilia B Leyden that has excessive bleeding in childhood but causes few problems after puberty. The disease is more common in males, and affects people from all racial and ethnic backgrounds.
