Introduction
We are talking about hemophilia that is a disorder of the blood clotting process.
when the men x chromosome carries the hemophilia gene, men will have the disease.
When a woman x chromosome carries hemophilia the normal chromosome will protect the woman of hemophilia. She has 50% of having the disease.
Some of the symptoms are: blood in the urine, bladder infection, pain andbleeding.

Development
How does the illness works?
Coagulation is the body's mechanism to halt bleeding. It involves at least 14 sequential steps, each requiring a specific plasma protein or "factor" normally found in the blood.In hemophilia , one of the factors required for the clotting sequence is deficient or absent. In hemophilia, one of the factors required for the clotting sequence isdeficient.
The two most common forms of hemophilia are hemophilia A and hemophilia B. The two most common forms of hemophilia are hemophilia A and hemophilia B. Hemophilia A and B have similar symptoms and were not recognized as separate disorders until 1952. Hemophilia A and B have similar symptoms.
Hemophilia A (classic hemophilia), is caused by the deficiency of Factor VIII. Hemophilia A is causedby the deficiency of Factor VIII.
Hemophilia B (also called Christmas disease, for the name of the family the disorder was first observed in), is caused by the deficiency of factor IX. Hemophilia B, is caused by the deficiency of Factor IX.
Hemophilia A is four times as common, with an estimated incidence of 1 in 10,000 males, while hemophilia B is estimated to occur in one in 40,000 males.Hemophilia A is four times as common, with an estimated incidence of 1 in 10.000 evils, while hemophilia B is estimated to occur in one in 40.000 evils. Approximately 1 woman in 5,000 is a carrier for hemophilia A, and 1 in 20,000 is a carrier of hemophilia B. Approximately one woman in 5.000 is a carrier for hemophilia A, and 1 in 20.000 is a carrier of hemophilia B.
Hemophilia is typicallydivided into three classes: severe, moderate and mild, based on the level of clotting factor in the blood. Typically Hemophilia is divided into three classes: severe, moderate and mild, based on the level of clotting factor in the blood. In severe hemophilia, there is less than 1 percent of normal clotting factor. In severe hemophilia, there is less than 1 percent of normal clotting factor. The degreeof severity tends to be consistent from generation to generation. The degree of severity tends to be consistent from generation to generation.
Contrary to popular belief, minor cuts and wounds do not usually present a threat to hemophiliacs. Contrary to popular belief, minor cuts do not usually present a threat to hemophiliacs. Rather, the greatest danger comes from spontaneous bleeding that mayoccur in joints and muscles.This is most prone to occur during years of rapid growth, typically between the ages of 5 and 15 years. This is most prone to occur during years of rapid growth, typically between the ages of 5 and 15 years.
Repeated spontaneous bleeding in joints may cause arthritis , and adjacent muscles become weakened. Repeated may spontaneous bleeding in joints causes arthritis.Pressure on nerves caused by the accumulation of blood may result in pain, numbness, and temporary inability to move the affected area. Pressure on nerves caused by the accumulation of blood may result in pain, and temporary inability to move the affected area.
The development of purified clotting factors in the 1970s, isolated from donated blood, significantly improved the long-term outlookfor hemophiliacs. The development of purified clotting factors in the 1970, isolated from donated blood. Severe hemophiliacs require transfusions of clotting factors as frequently as once a wSevere hemophiliacs require transfusions of clotting factors.
How it is detected?
Blood tests determine the effectiveness of clotting and the levels of factors clotting will be abnormal.
