Hemophilia

Hemophilia is the most common inherited bleeding disorder. People with hemophilia have low levels of one of two blood-clotting substances, known as factor VIII and factor IX. As a result, their blood does not clot properly and they may bleed for a long time after an injury. They may also experience internal bleeding, especially in the joints. There are two types of hemophilia -- type A and type B.
