The Hemophilias are congenital coagulopathies with serious hemorrhagic symptoms. Hemophilia A represents a deficiency of factor VIII activity and hemophilia B represents defect in factor IX activity. Diagnosis is commonly based on conventional clotting test which have veen established for many years. In addition, treatment utilizing concentrated coagulation factor products is well defined.
