This discussion is very interesting and some of the data is being repeated on a new thread.

Bumping it up.

Thank you Bear.
On the other thread someone mentioned that Nicholas had used the word hemophilia in his dairy. Can anyone be more specific about this entry? Year perhaps? I am unable to find an entry that uses the word hemophilia in any of the information I have.

Who made the pronouncement referred to in this article? There is no reference to the IF etc.

The physicians who were treating Alexei at Spala where he was dying from the unstopped bleeding made the "pronouncement".

Thank you. FA. I wonder why that is not attributed in the story? Was there a story prior to this one?

yes, there were almost daily reports on the condition of the Tsarevich during the Spala crisis.

I am assuming you mean there were "almost daily" reports in the New York Times?

Here is what Massie says about Spala:
"Because the crisis at Spala is so obscure and yet so enormously important to what happened later, every possible explanation should be examined."
Nicholas and Alexandra Chapter 14.

Did the doctors tell the public that Alexei had "hemophilia" or did they say he had a "blood disorder".

Just because a NY Times reporter used the word "hemophilia" doesn't mean this is what the Romanov doctors had said.

It  might well have been that the reporter knew about the other family members who were diagnoised with "hemophilia" and leaped to this conclusion and wrote it in the article even though the words reported were "blood disorder".

Please,  do not think that I believe that Alexei didn't have a serious blood disorder which was probably hemophilia.  My point is that I have been lead to believe that the Romanov doctors didn't use the word "hemophilia" then or later since Alexei's hemophiliac condition was  said to have been  withheld from the public.

Was "hemophilia" mentioned in Nicholas II's diary??

I think (but this is only an opinion), that if the paper used the word "hemophilia", and the Imperial family don't deny it, it must have been for they know how the "blood disorder" was. Nicholas II was still an important and powerful ruler when the paper published the news.

And, if you wants to check the differences between hemophilia and thrombocytopenia, I think that we discussed the topic here in this very thread. The Tsarevich had all the symptoms of hemophilia, and we must add to this , that he was sourrounded by hemophiliac relatives, by the side of her mother. Alix brother himself dead from it.

For more details, please , visit: www. hemophilia.org  . It has a great amount of information about this "blood  disorder".

No. There is absolutely no reason why Nikolai II should have.
