Also known as: bleeding disorders, rare coagulation disorders, rare clotting disorders, hemophilia.
Rare bleeding disorders refer to many uncommon types of medical conditions such as hemophilia and others that impact the body’s ability to stop bleeding, or clot blood properly.
In many cases, rare bleeding disorders are genetic and passed along from parents to their children. Certain medications or other diseases can also lead to bleeding disorders.
Symptoms of blood disorders can vary widely depending on the severity of the illness, and what component of the blood is impacted. Trouble with bleeding and bruising can occur with clotting disorders.
Treatment options for rare bleeding disorders depends on the severity of the disorder.

Hemophilia is a disease in which the blood is missing a component that makes it clot properly. The result is that the individual with hemophilia can bleed easily, bleed excessively or not stop bleeding once they start, among other problems. In the case of hemophilia B, the blood is deficient in factor IX.
VMD is a bleeding disorder. Children with VWD have a defect or are missing a blood clotting protein called the Von Willebrand factor.
