CAUSES OF HEMOPHILIA
Genetic mutation is the cause of this bleeding disorder and as such there are no preventive measures of this class of diseases. The mutations occur on the genes that code the proteins which in turn control the production of agents responsible for the clotting process. The more severe the symptoms of the disease the earlier it can be diagnosed. The severity varies from person to person and from type to type. Identifying hemophilia is difficult in infants and becomes more apparent if present in one the babies become mobile. Mild cases are especially hard to diagnose until later stages. Internal bleeding also happens especially in the joints.
