Hemophilia

  • Treatment

    Standard treatment involves replacing the missing clotting factor through a vein (intravenous infusions).

    Diagnosing a bleeding disorder is important so that the doctor can take extra care if you need surgery, and can test or warn other family members who might be affected.

    Expectations (prognosis)

    Many people with hemophilia are able to lead pretty normal lives. However, some patients have major bleeding events, most commonly bleeding into the joint spaces.

    A small percentage of people with hemophilia may die from severe bleeding.
