Haemophilia B is an X-linked disorder with an incidence of 1 in 25000 males. There are no common molecular defects in the FIX gene. The molecular defects observed are missense variants, gross deletions/duplications. These are screened initially by DNA sequencing; and if negative, fragment analysis is performed.
