ABSTRACT

Aim: This paper aims at providing more information of people with hemophilia for more targeted treatment. Methods: 1149 people with hemophilia are surveyed in 45 units, and then established by EpiData software. The number of people with hemophilia in 9 age intervals for the male and female is analyzed by Population Pyramid and Pareto Analysis. Results: It is found that the people with hemophilia are appearing in every age interval. Relative to the number of male patients, the number of female patients is extremely rare. Of 1134 male patients, relative frequencies for male ranked the first (23.0%), second (17.4%), third (17.2%) are 7 - 12, 2 - 3, 13 - 18 years old, respectively, while of 15 female patients, relative frequencies for female in these age intervals are only 13.3%, 13.3%, 6.7%, respectively. However, the most relative frequency of female patients is between 26 - 45 years old. Conclusion: There is a challenge of the aging hemophilia population. Most of male patients are between 7 - 12 and 2 - 3 years old. Most of female patients are between 26 - 45 years old.
