Haemophilia is a very rare congenital disorder resulting from a lack of clotting factor VIII (haemophilia A) or IX (haemophilia B). Type A affects 1 in 5,000 children and type B affects 1 in 30,000. The gene whose code carries instructions for building the proteins for these factors is located on the X chromosome. For this reason, women carry this genetic mutation but it affects men. Despite this, in most cases there is no family history of haemophilia.
