Were you looking for information about Hemophilia? Hemofilie is a common misspelling of hemophilia.
People with hemophilia, an inherited disorder, have problems with certain proteins in their blood (called clotting factors). Blood does not clot normally, causing people with the condition to bleed for a longer period of time following an injury or accident. Hemophilia is caused by a defect in one of the genes that determines how the body makes certain blood-clotting factors. Treatment for this condition involves injecting the low or missing clotting factors directly into the bloodstream.
