Haemophilia is a congenital bleeding disorder that affects males.
Those with haemophilia B have similar problems with Factor IX (FIX).  Haemophilia is characterised as "severe" when the activity of the affected clotting factor (FVIII or FIX) is less than 1% of normal.
Haemophilia is termed "mild" when the relevant clotting factor activity is greater than 5%, but less than normal and "moderate" when clotting factor activity is between 1% and 5% of normal.  Approximately 50% of haemophilia patients have severe disease and can require treatment for bleeding several times per month.

 HAEMOPHILIA, VON WILLEBRAND SYNDROME and other coagulation defects: Contact a Family - for families with disabled ...
Haemophilia occurs in about 1 in 10,000 of the population in the UK, with haemophilia A (six thousand patients) being five times as frequent as haemophilia B (one thousand two hundred and fifty patients).
These are generally milder than haemophilia and are usually autosomal recessive, only being fully expressed in the homozygous (having two identical forms of the gene, one inherited from each parent) or doubly heterozygous (having two different forms of a particular gene, one inherited from each parent) state.
Haemophilia A and B are sex (X) linked and it is usually possible to determine the causative genetic abnormality but new spontaneous mutations are not uncommon.
