Haemophilia A and B are congenital bleeding disorders caused by coagulation factor VIII or IX deficiency. Haemophilia A and B occur in men, like all qualities dependent on genes linked to gender, whereas women are asymptomatic carriers of the gene. The most dangerous manifestations of severe haemophilia include spontaneous haemorrhages into the joints, muscles and body cavities, haematuria and potentially very dangerous intracranial haemorrhages are also quite frequent. The most common manifestations in the region of the maxillofacial skeleton and oral cavity are recurring bleedings from the nose and the gums after dental extractions, as well as extensive haemorrhages from wounds after surgical procedures.

The aim of the study was the analysis of epidemiologic case records of 22 patients affected by various types of haemophilia, admitted to Maxillofacial Surgery Department at Medical University in Lublin, Poland, during 2008–2013.

The most numerous group constituted patients diagnosed with Haemophilia A, followed by patients with von Willebrand disease and Haemophilia B, aged 21–40 years. The main cause of hospital admission was the need to perform complex oral cavity sanation. The patients were treated with factor VIII or Factor IX, FEIBA or Heamate P, depending on the type and severity of bleeding diathesis.
