Haemophilia generally is of two types:

1. Haemophilia A - It occurs due to lack of clotting factor VIII generally in males. affects about 1 in 5,000–10,000 males at birth. In majority cases, it is inherited as an X-linked recessive trait arises from spontaneous mutations, Factor VIII medication can be used to treat bleeding.

2. Haemophilia B - It occurs due to excess clotting factor IX. It affects about 1 in 5,000–10,000 males at birth. Haemophilia B causes easy bruising and bleeding, and resulting in a deficiency of factor IX. It is less common than factor VIII deficiency (haemophilia A). Haemophilia B was first recognized in 1952.
