Correction

November 02, 1993

An article in yesterday's Sun mistakenly characterized the symptoms of hemophilia. Even in serious cases of hemophilia, minor cuts rarely bleed out of control. Such cuts usually clot on their own, or heal when pressure is applied or when a clotting factor is given. The most serious threat to hemophiliacs is internal bleeding -- often the result of blows to the head or other parts of the body. Such injuries can be life-threatening.

The Sun regrets the errors.
