Thalassaemias

Thalassaemias (a deficiency of globin chains) must be differentiated from other haemolytic diseases (thalassaemia major and intermedia) and iron deficiency (thalassaemia minor). Unnecessary investigations and iron therapy should be avoided in patients with thalassaemia. Genetic counselling should be offered to thalassaemia gene carriers of reproductive age.
