  Haemophilia, also spelled hemophilia, is a mostly inherited genetic disorder that impairs the body's ability to make blood clots, a process needed to stop bleeding. This results in people bleeding longer after an injury, easy bruising, and an increased risk of bleeding inside joints or the brain. Those with a mild case of the disease may have symptoms only after an accident or during surgery.   Hemophilia A results from the deficiency of clotting factor VIII. Hemophilia B results from the deficiency of clotting factor IX. Acquired hemophilia is a separate noninherited condition. It is much rarer than congenital hemophilia and has an autoimmune-related .

The etiology and pathophysiology are similar to those of hemophilia A. Hemophilia C is an autosomal recessive deficiency of factor XI, also interrupting hemostasis. Acquired hemophilia is caused by autoantibodies directed at factor VIII.

Changes in the F8 gene are responsible for hemophilia A, while mutations in the F9 gene cause hemophilia B. The F8 gene provides instructions for making a protein called coagulation factor VIII.

A related protein, coagulation factor IX, is produced from the F9 gene. Coagulation factors are proteins that work together in the blood clotting an injury, blood clots protect the body.
