It has been previously shown that patients with severe haemophilia and not receiving any prophylactic treatment render a high risk of reduced bone mineral density. The purpose of this study was to evaluate bone mineral density (BMD) in patients with haemophilia of different severity types and treatment. The study group consisted of 26 patients with severe haemophilia (aged 33.6 +/- 2.1) and 16 patients with mild haemophilia (aged 40.2 +/- 3.3). The BMD (g cm(-2)) was measured by dual-energy X… CONTINUE READING
