Homozygosity for the AATAAA > AATA- - Polyadenylation Site Mutation on the α2-Globin Gene Causing Transfusion-Dependent Hb H Disease in an Iranian Patient: A Case Report



Homozygosity for the AATAAA > AATA- - Polyadenylation Site Mutation on the α2-Globin Gene Causing Transfusion-Dependent Hb H Disease in an Iranian Patient: A Case Report



Hemoglobin 39(5): 355-358



We describe a case of Hb H disease associated with homozygosity for a two nucleotide deletion in the polyadenylation signal of the α2-globin gene (HBA2: c.*93_*94delAA). The patient, a 27-year-old son of a consanguineous couple, needs regular blood transfusions every 6 months.
