Newborn boys with severe hemophilia may present with prolonged bleeding at circumcision. Easy bruising may occur at the start of ambulation or primary dentition. Older patients may have a history of hemarthroses and prolonged bleeding with surgical procedures, trauma, and dental extraction, and may have spontaneous bleeding in soft tissues.
