Hemophilia A

Hemophilia A, also called, factor VIII (FVIII) deficiency or classic hemophilia is a genetic bleeding disorder caused by a lack of blood clotting factor VIII. Without enough factor VIII, the blood cannot clot properly to control bleeding.  Although it is passed down from parents to children, about 1/3 of cases are caused by a spontaneous mutation, a change in a gene.  Hemophilia A is four times as common as hemophilia B while more than half of patients with hemophilia A have the severe form of hemophilia.

Hemophilia B

Hemophilia B, also called factor IX (FIX) deficiency or Christmas disease, is a genetic bleeding disorder caused by a lack of blood clotting factor IX. Without enough factor IX, the blood cannot clot properly to control bleeding.   Although it is passed down from parents to children, about 1/3 of cases are caused by a spontaneous mutation, a change in a gene. It is also 4 times less common than Hemophilia A.
