In brief: Inherited bleeding c

It is a heritable bleeding condition due to deficiency of one of blood clotting factors, factor ix(nine).
Usually occurs only in men or boys. The severity of bleeding varies tremendously from an individual to individual. The earliest bleeding sign may be prolonged bleeding after circumcision in newborns. Once the child gets old enough to walk, there may be lots of bleeding into muscles (hematoma).
