Bleeding disorder: Classical hemophilia, also called hemophilia a, is a bleeding disorder due to deficiency of clotting factor viii and affects boys almost exclusively. About 1 in 5000 boys are born with it. There are other types of hemophilia too. See this site for more info. http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/health-topics/topics/hemophilia/.
