Hemophilia is a rare disorder in which your blood doesn't clot normally because it lacks sufficient blood-clotting proteins (clotting factors). If you have hemophilia, you may bleed for a longer time after an injury than you would if your blood clotted normally.
Small cuts usually aren't much of a problem. The greater health concern is deep bleeding inside your body, especially in your knees, ankles and elbows. That internal bleeding can damage your organs and tissues, and may be life-threatening.
Hemophilia is an inherited (genetic) disorder. There's no cure yet. But with proper treatment and self-care, most people with hemophilia can maintain an active, productive lifestyle
Cause-When you bleed, your body normally pools blood cells together to form a clot to stop the bleeding. The clotting process is encouraged by certain blood particles (platelets and plasma proteins). Hemophilia occurs when you have a deficiency in one of these clotting factors.
Hemophilia is inherited. However, about 30 percent of people with hemophilia have no family history of the disorder. In these people hemophilia is caused by a genetic change (spontaneous mutation).
There are several types of hemophilia. They are classified according to which clotting factor is deficient:
Hemophilia A, the most common type, is caused by insufficient clotting factor VIII.
Hemophilia B, the second most common type, is caused by insufficient clotting factor IX.
 Hemophilia C, in which signs and symptoms are often mild, is caused by insufficient clotting factor XI.
Symptoms- Signs and symptoms of hemophilia vary, depending on your level of clotting factors. If your clotting-factor level is mildly reduced, you may bleed only after surgery or trauma. If your deficiency is severe, you may experience spontaneous bleeding.
Signs and symptoms of spontaneous bleeding include:--Unexplained and excessive bleeding from cuts or injuries, or after surgery or dental work, Many large or deep bruises, Unusual bleeding after vaccinations, Pain, swelling or tightness in your joints
Blood in your urine or stool, Nosebleeds without a known cause, In infants, unexplained irritability
Emergency signs and symptoms of hemophilia include:--Sudden pain, swelling and warmth in large joints, such as knees, elbows, hips and shoulders, and in your arm and leg muscles, Bleeding from an injury, especially if you have a severe form of haemophilia, Painful, prolonged headache, Repeated vomiting, Extreme fatigue, Neck pain, Double vision
