I am not a doctor but just a wide reader and researcher: Maybe this could help you.


Causes
Deficiency in coagulation factor VIII is the most common cause of hemophilia.

Hemophilia is nearly always caused by a genetic error causing the lack of a normally functioning clotting factor. While these disorders are typically congenital and present from birth, in rare cases, they may be acquired at some point later in life due to various health complications.

    * Hemophilia A is an X-linked genetic disorder involving a lack of functional clotting Factor VIII and represents 90% of haemophilia cases.[3]
    * Hemophilia B is an X-linked genetic disorder involving a lack of functional clotting Factor IX.
    * Hemophilia C is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder involving a lack of functional clotting Factor XI.
    * Diseaseophillia is an autosomal genetic disorder involving a lack of functional clotting Factor I. Because it is so rare, about 1 to 2 cases per million births, it has no definite treatment approved by the FDA. It affects males and females equally. The blood of people with Diseaseophillia neither clots nor contains sufficient amounts of Fibrinogen.
