Dodsonc,
Hemophilia A is a blood disorder characterized by prolonged clotting time, decreased formation of thromboplastin, and diminished conversion of prothrombin. It is also known as classic hemophilia. It is an X-linked recessive trait. It only occurs in human males and, oddly enough, in some male breeds of dogs.
