About Hemophilia A

Hemophilia A is a genetic disease caused by the deficiency of clotting factor VIII. It is the most common type of hemophilia and occurs much more frequently in males; incidence is estimated at 1 in 4,000-5,000 male births. People born with hemophilia produce little or no clotting factors. The two main types of hemophilia are A and B. People with hemophilia A are missing or have low levels of clotting factor VIII.
