Hemophilia is a rare genetic disorder that causes blood to thin significantly reducing its ability to clot. The blood is unable to clot because it does not have sufficient blood-clotting proteins also known as clotting factors.
For patients with hemophilia, small cuts aren't usually very problematic. The bigger risk is deep bleeding inside the body, especially in the areas around the knees, ankles and elbows. This kind of internal bleeding can damage organs and tissues, and may be life-threatening. It is classified as hemophilia A, B and C.
Although there is no cure yet for hemophilia, with proper care and precautions, patients diagnosed with it can lead normal lives.
i. Inexplicable and heavy bleeding from cuts or injuries

vii. Nosebleeds without a known cause
