    A case of haemoglobin Bart's hydrops syndrome was characterised in a Greek family with a history of three other fetuses with hydrops. Family studies showed that both the mother and father carried α-thalassaemia genes, and globin-chain synthesis analysis of the present fetus showed a total...

    INTRODUCTION : Thalassaemia is a common public health problem among Malays. Haemoglobin C (Hb C) is a haemoglobin beta variant resulting from a single base mutation at the 6th position of the beta globin gene leading to the substitution of glycine for glutamic acid. A rare type of...

    Background: Beta-thalassaemia is a congenital disorder caused by point mutations in a haemoglobin beta-globin chain. The heterozygous form produces microcytosis and normal iron levels, however, haemoglobin electrophoresis shows elevated amounts of haemoglobin A2 and eventually foetal haemoglobin...

  • thalassaemia. Peters, Michael // BMA A-Z Family Medical Encyclopedia;2004, p739 

    A definition of the term "thalassaemia" is presented. It pertains to a group of inherited blood diseases in which there is a conflict in the development of the oxygen-carrying pigment haemoglobin. Thalassaemia is common in regions such as the Mediterranean, the Middle East and Southeast Asia and...
