Hemophilia: A Royal Disease

HemophiliaThis case study is about an X-linked recessive disorder called Hemophilia, which is the inability to form blood clots. Without the ability for blood to clot, people loss blood and can die from them because of the blood loss. This study is about how this disorder played an important role in European history because this disorder had spread to the royal families in Europe through Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth. This is why it is called the “Royal Disease.” We had to complete different pedigrees for the families and the descendants of them to trace the hemophilia gene throughout the generations.
