Thalassemia and sickle cell disease are two well-known hemoglobinopathies. Thalassemia is caused by impaired production of either the alpha or beta hemoglobin chain and is accordingly classified. This topic review discusses the clinical manifestations and diagnosis of alpha and beta thalassemia, the two most common forms. Thalassemias involving delta, gamma, epsilon, and zeta chains are rare and usually not associated with significant disease outside of the neonatal period.

Thalassemia Summary Interpretation, an additional consultative interpretation that summarizes all testing, will be provided after test completion to incorporate subsequent results into overall evaluation if any of the following molecular tests are reflexed on the Thalassemia and Hemoglobinopathy Evaluation: ATHAL / Alpha-Globin Gene Analysis. Thalassemia may be anticipated based on family history, or it may be a new diagnosis for a family. Newborn screening involves evaluation of Hgb production shortly after birth. Homozygous β 0-thalassemia will have % fetal Hgb on newborn screen with complete absence of HgbA. All other forms of β-thalassemia cannot be identified at birth.

The first example of non invasive prenatal diagnosis of haemoglobinopathies was described in by Camaschella et al. 46 The genetic test was carried out in three selected couples where the mother was carrier of β-thalassemia and the father of the Hb Lepore-Boston trait.
The absence/presence of the paternal trait was successfully detected in Cited by: 8. Prenatal diagnosis of thalassemia and the hemoglobinopathies. Boca Raton, Fla.: CRC Press, © (OCoLC) Online version: Prenatal diagnosis of thalassemia and the hemoglobinopathies.

The purpose is to allow parents to make reproductive choices based on this information and, in the case of alpha-thalassemia major, to monitor the pregnancy for nonimmune hydrops fetalis and potentially intervene.
HEMOGLOBINOPATHIES Hemoglobinopathies are inherited disorders of red blood cells and constitute an important cause of morbidity and mortality. Thalassemia major, sickle cell disease and HbE are the three most important clinical syndromes among hemoglobinopathies in India.(1) PREVALENCE OF MAJOR HEMOGLOBINOPATHIES IN INDIA According to the government, India has the largest.

Abstract: Background: Beta thalassemia is a common disorder with autosomal recessive inheritance. The most prenatal diagnostic methods are the invasive techniques that have the risk of miscarriage. On the other hand, a more recent study presenting the current status of the PND services and results from the largest thalassaemia centre in Egypt treating 3, patients showed that all 24 women who underwent prenatal testing and received a diagnosis that the foetus is affected by β-thalassemia major opted for pregnancy termination.

The flow chart shown in Fig 4 summarizes the techniques for diagnosis of thalassemia and hemoglobinopathies that are commonly used in most laboratories. Fig. The thalassemia minor syndromes are characterized clinically by mild anemia with persistent microcytosis.
Thalassemia intermedia (i.e., Hb H disease) is typified by a moderate, variably compensated hemolytic anemia that may present with clinical symptoms during a period of physiologic stress such as infection, pregnancy, or surgery.
The diagnosis of the hemoglobinopathies can be a challenge because methods of diagnosis can differ among the different types. For example: Sickle cell anemia can be identiﬁ ed by hemoglobin electrophoresis alone, while both alpha and beta thalassemia need.
This contrasts with the hemoglobinopathies in which the variant haemoglobins are qualitatively or structurally abnormal. Classification The thalassemias are a heterogeneous group of disorders and are classified according to the particular globin chain or chains synthesized in reduced amounts, i.e.
