Aquired Hemophilia 3

Acquired Hemophilia

 

Although very rare, Hemophilia can be acquired. This does not mean that you can catch it from another hemophiliac like the common cold or AIDS. Instead, a person can develop antibodies that attack clotting factor(s) in the blood, leading to difficulty in clotting.[1]

I didn't know that you could catch hemophilia. That's rather interesting.
