Abstract

In recent decades, several improvements in hemophilia care have resulted in increased quality of life and life expectancy for those affected by this inherited hemorrhagic condition. Nowadays, individuals with hemophilia enjoy a life expectancy at birth close to that of males in the general population. As a consequence of the increasing age of the hemophilia population, a growing number of these patients develop age-related co-morbidities, such as cardiovascular disease and cancer, the management of which represents a new challenge for caregivers at hemophilia treatment centers. This narrative review focuses on the clinical problems arising in older people with hemophilia, with particular attention to the optimal therapeutic strategies.
