TYPES OF HEMOPHILIA
The major types of hemophilia are based in the clotting factors of the blood that they affect.
● Hemophilia A: Usually affecting females due to the presence of the Hemophilia A gene in the X chromosome this type is due to the profound deficiency of factor VIII that is necessary for normal clotting.
● Hemophilia B: When the coagulation factor IX is deficient in the blood there will be prolonged oozing of blood especially from medical wounds or from scrapes and minor injuries. Bleeding occurs even if the initial bleeding has been stopped.
● Hemophilia C: This is a type of non recessive autosomal disorder with the deficiency occurring in the factor XI.
