10 Signs and Symptoms of Hemophilia

2. Tendency to Bruising

Those who suffer from hemophilia will be prone to bruising that may be noticeable in infancy. For instance, aside from typical rough and tumble bruising from pay, children with hemophilia will bruise very easily and quite severely compared to other, health children.

As mentioned, cases of hemophilia are typically diagnosed fairly early with the first case of bleeding or bruising. Usually a pre-existing family history of hemophilia will already exist. A mere one third of individuals are born without a family history of hemophilia. However, a special blood test can be conducted shortly after birth to determine if your baby has the disorder (if a family history exists). Doctors will often recommend prenatal genetic testing in order to diagnose hemophilia before delivery in some cases.
