Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Cross-species summary: Also called factor VIII deficiency. Impaired coagulability of the blood, with a consequential strong tendency to bleed, due to a deficiency of clotting factor VIII. Since the gene for this factor is located on the X chromosome, the disorder is expected to be X-linked. As with haemophilia B, this expectation has been confirmed in all species of mammal in which the disorder has been reported. In humans, there are hundreds of different mutations that give rise to haemophilia A. In domesticated animals, the disorder has been reported in a large range of species.
