Hemophilia, a genetically determined disorder, is characterized by abnormality of the coagulation mechanism due to functional deficiency of a specific factor, namely VIII or IX.

The purpose of this study was to determine the various clinical aspects of hemophilia in evidence at the present time as well as to provide the basic concept for comprehensive rehabilitation management.

All of twenty-five cases were male. A positive family history was obtained in 64% of the cases, in descending order; brother, maternal uncle, maternal cousin, and maternal grand-father.

Hemophilic arthropathy was present in 14 cases(56%) and the incidence increased significantly with age. The weight-bearing joints were most commonly affected, with frequency of involvement being, in descending order: knee, elbow, ankle, and hip.

Conclusively, we suggest comprehensive rehabilitation management and multidisciplinary team approach for the hemophiliacs.

Key Words: Hemophilia, Hemarthrosis
