Hemophilia is a mostly inherited genetic disorder that impairs the body's ability to make blood clots, a process needed to stop bleeding. This results in people bleeding longer after an injury, easy bruising, and an increased risk of bleeding inside joints or the brain. There are two main types of haemophilia: haemophilia A, which occurs due to not enough clotting factor VIII, and haemophilia B, which occurs due to not enough clotting factor IX.
Alternate ICD10s to consider coding instead or in addition
I made the category Hemophila since Disease of blood or blood-forming organ, NOS had it as an SC and I needed to be able to link it. Is the list now grouped complete? If not, pls add the tag below this question to other pages as appropriate.
