A haemophiliac is a person who is suffering from any of several hereditary genetic illnesses that impair the body's ability to control bleeding.

:?: :?:

Haemophilia is uncurable. But symptoms can be relieved by frequent injection of coagulation factors purified from blood. Hence if blood is contaminated by HIV, Haemophiliac are likely to become infected.

About this: i read in a genetics book(a college course, 2005 edition) that it is not yet known why sometimes hemophilia appears in women. Most book say that the recessive gene for hemophilia is deadly in a homozygous state. But history has shown us differently. Any info/thoughts?

But, as much as I know, those women don't live long. Am I mistaken?

The main cause of haemaphilia is a gene defect found on the Y-chromosome- bad luck lads! but there other disorders which cause a lack of clotting factors in the blood which can lead to haemaphilia. cant remember what they are but will try to find out

I have no idea how long they live. All i know that sometimes, in very few cases, hemophilia can occur in women
