Were you looking for information about Hemophilia? Hemophillia is a common misspelling of hemophilia.
Hemophilia is an inherited disorder that affects approximately 18,000 people in the United States. It is a condition in which the blood does not clot normally, which can lead to internal bleeding. People with the disease may also bleed for a longer period of time following an injury or accident. The major signs and symptoms of hemophilia are easy bleeding and bruising. Treatment for this condition typically involves replacement therapy, which consists of injecting the low or missing clotting factors directly into the bloodstream.
