Prognosis & life expectancy

With appropriate treatment, the prognosis of patients with hemophilia is very favorable. They can live productive lives, especially when they are treated early and use prophylaxis measures.

Still, a small proportion of patients with hemophilia develop a very severe type. One-quarter of them end up with impaired motor skills, behavioral and cognitive problems by their 6-18 years of age.

Life expectancy in cases of hemophilia is 60 years or more.
