What Are the Effects of Hemophilia?

Q:
What are the effects of hemophilia?

A:
Hemophilia can affect patients’ life in many aspects, such emotion, socialization and articulations.

The most common effect of hemophilia is prolonged bleeding. People with hemophilia are likely to bleed for a long time just because of a small cut. However, internal bleeding occurs from time to time in severe cases. The consequences are more serious, including arthritis and even death.

Hemophilia can also do harm to your articulations. In most hemophiliac patients, bleeding often occurs within the joints. As hemophilia can cause prolonged bleeding, the synovium can be forced to hypertrophy. As a result, a vicious cycle of chronic synovitis develops, which can lead to joint destruction.
