Hemophilia is a genetic disorder in which the patient tends to bleed excessively.
The peculiar thing about the transmission of this disease is that only the males suffer from it.
The females are only the carriers. Unless and until the sufferer bleeds into a vital organ and dies,
Hemophilia is not a killing disease. However, the type of life, it compels the effected man to lead,
is such that it is hardly worth living with all the pain and torture and severe crippling of limbs,
not a small number of Hemophilics have been known to end their life immaturely.
The cause of Hemophilia is the inability of the body to produce the anti-hemophilic factor (AHF for short) in the required quantity.
There is no known cure for this disorder. The line of treatment in case of an internal-bleed or external-bleed is to supplement the patient’s AHF level by fresh blood transfusion. However, in case of severe injury the blood required may be so much that the heart would not be in a position to take the load. Hence the need for concentrates of AHF.
