Hemophilia is a medical condition in which the blood flowing from the body does not clot or gather around the cut or breakage in the skin layer. This happens when the blood lacks blood clogging properties. This condition holds true in case of both external and internal bleeding scenarios. This disease is usually curable and mild in nature, but if not diagnosed and cured during its early stages, it may be life threatening. One of the most common consequence of this condition is also that once the blood starts flowing from a cut then it may lead to excessive blood loss from the body ultimately causing weakness.
HOW IS HEMOPHILIA DIAGNOSED?
Hemophilia A and B are inherited in an X-linked recessive genetic pattern, so males are commonly affected while females are usually carriers of the disease.
