What is Hemophilia?

TypesHemophilia AHemophilia B

Hemophilia ACoagulation disorder Factor VIII deficiency

Inheritance X-Linked Recessive


FACTOR VIII1unit/ml = 100% Normal range is 50-150%.

Clinical Manifestations

Severe factor VIII deficiency< 1% activityFrequent spontaneous bleeding from skin , mucous membrane , joints, muscles and visceraModerate Factor VIII deficiency1-5% activity

Mild Factor VIII deficiency6-30% activityTrauma surgery






DiagnosisPositive family historyAPTT is prolongedClotting time prolongedBleeding and prothrombin time is normalFactor VIII assay


Intracranial hemorrhage

Intramuscular hematomas


Infections Related To Blood Transfusion

General Supportive CarePrevention of traumaAvoid aspirinImmunization

SPECIFIC MANAGEMENTNormalize factor VIII activity by:Factor VIII concentrateWhole fresh bloodFresh Frozen PlasmaCryoprecipitate

For Life threatening bleed :80-100% activity requiredFor Mild to moderate bleed : 40% activity required


Mild Bleed: Desmopressin acetateOral Bleed: Aminocaproic and tranexamic acid

PREVENTIONGenetic counselingAntenatal diagnosis

PROGNOSISAttention is given to childs :PhysicalEmotionalSocialEducational status

Hemophilia B

Factor IX deficiencyX-linked recessiveAPTT prolongedPT and thrombin time normalDiagnosis: Factor IX assayTreatment: Fresh frozen plasma/factor IX administration

Differential diagnosisHemophilia AHemophilia BIdiopathic thrombocytopenic purpuraPlatelet function disorderVon willebrand disease



PLATELET COUNT LOW CONGENITAL ( Fanconi syndrome)ACQUIRED ( idiopathic , drug induced )PLATELET COUNT IF NORMALPlatelet function disorders ( morphology , aggregometery , electron microscope )



A 5 year old boy presents to out patient department with complaint of joint swelling after trauma for last 02 days. His lab shows : Platelet count = 170, 000 (150,000 - 400 ,000)Prothrombin Time = 14 :12 secondsActivated Partial Thromboplastin Time = 50:25 seconds

What is most probable diagnosis ?Disseminated Intravascular CoagulationHemophiliaIdiopathic Thrombocytopenic purpuraPlatelet function disordersVon Willebrand Disease

Answer is Hemophilia
