Haemophilia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1108 words)
Haemophilia A and B are inherited in an X-linked recessive pattern.
The genes for both Haemophilia A and Haemophilia B are located on the X chromosome; other clotting factor deficiencies exist, but are not considered to be types of haemophilia because they are passed on through autosomes rather than through the X chromosome.
Haemophilia is particularly dangerous in adult women because of the recurring bloodflows involved in menstruation; so they must take clotting factor to survive.
