    00:00 So in a nutshell, hemophilia is a rare disorder in which the blood doesn't clot normally because it lacks sufficient blood clotting proteins - these are the clotting factors.

    00:10 Hemophilia A has a defect with Factor VIII and hemophilia B has a defect with factor IX.

    00:17 There are acquired and genetic forms of hemophilia Genetic hemophilia is an X-linked recessive disorder.
