Introduction: Defects in blood coagulation can be congenital or acquired. Haemophilia belongs to the congenital (hereditary) coagulopathies.It is inherited recessively by a mutant gene located on the X-chromosome, therefore it affects only men. Women are carriers of the pathological gene. There are two common types of haemophilia, one associated with the F VIII deficiency or haemophilia A, and the other with the F IX deficiency or haemophilia B. Aim of this researche is to trace the representation of haemophilia in the general population, to follow the clinical course, diagnostic procedures, necessary therapy, complications arising as a result of this syndrome, the role of the laboratory analyst in constructing precise and proper analysis. Matherial and methods: In this researcher monitoring we introduce three cases of haemophilia recorded in the transfusion service in Macedonia. Results: We are followed three cases of haemophilia, recorded in transfusion department at the Clinical Center in Macedonia. For the purpose of this paper work are allocated three people, two with haemophilia A, one child and one adult person and one person with hemophilia B, all male. In all these cases, therapy is preventive and receive appropriate according to age and needs. Their dose increases in case of injuries or extensive bleeding. Conclusion: Early prophylactic use of clotting factors with severe hemophilia is gaining acceptance as a way to prevent pain and morbidity associated with bleeding disorders.
