Hemophilia is a blood disorder that is usually genetically inherited from a parent, except for rare cases in which it is acquired. Hemophilia A is the most common type of hemophilia, and it is estimated to affect more than 1.2 million males worldwide. Hemophilia A negatively impacts quality of life and often diminishes lifespan as a result of complications. Patients may experience joint bleeding, joint destruction, crippling arthropathy, acute and chronic pain, and other significant manifestations. A growing treatment armamentarium has led to improvements in the quality of life and longer lifespans for many people with hemophilia. As agents become increasingly available, personalized care for optimal outcomes is becoming possible.
