    Abstract

    A rare case of thalassaemia-intermedia involving a nondeletion alpha thalassemia point mutation in the α1-globin gene CD59 (GGC-GAC) and a deletion α+ (-α3.7) thalassaemia in which use of high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) C-gram Hb subtype profile and DNA molecular analysis helped establish the diagnosis.
