Can women have hemophilia or are they just carriers?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 12/05/2018

Yes, cases of women with hemophilia can occur when the father is a hemophiliac and the mother carries the same mutation. However, this possibility is very unlikely and is not usually contemplated.

It is most common to find men with hemophilia and women who are carriers.
