These patients were classified into two groups; Group I;33 hemophilic patients with arthropathy. GroupII;33 hemophilic patients without arthropathy. Both sex had been included in the study are subjected to the following: Full history taking including personal history. Thorough clinical examination: Assessmentof anthropometric measurements Quality of life using Hamo - Qol questionnaireResults:The obesity (85-95precentile) was found more in hemophilia with arthropathy[33.3%] than in hemophilia without arthropathy [10.3%].Patients with hemophilia in our study had been found 100%[p=1] Unsatisified about quality of life in both groups with H.A.&without H.A.Conclusion: All hemophilic patients received treatment on-demand only, No prophylaxis treatment. Regarding to H.A. our study reported that severity of H.A. Correlate positively with ( age ( years), weight , BMI , waist (cm), Global Giat Score and with HJHS total Score ). In contrast , it correlate negatively with factor plasma level . All hemophilic patients (with or without hemoarthropathy ) suffer from unsatisified quality of life (100%).
