Haemophilia in Zambian children.
MetadataShow full item record
Haemophilia is not as uncommon in Black people as was previously thought (Bullock and Johnson 1957, Gelfand 1945). Several cases of haemophilia have been reported in Africa (Forbes et al 1966, Comperts et al 1969, Robin 1964, Essien and Adeloye 1972). In Zambia, Traug (1970) reported a single case of classical haemophilia in the first issue of the Zambia Paediatric Journal. Twelve cases of classical haemophilia seen during a two-year period (1973-1975) are reported here for the purpose of documentation and to bring to the attention of Medical Practitioners that this disease does occur in the country
