The gene frequency of the most important hemoglobin (Hb) abnormalities is reported in a population of 171 Togolese newborns. Hb phenotypes, hematological parameters, and the more frequently described alpha-gene deletions were analyzed. Structural abnormalities of beta-globin were observed in 35.7% of the children with a gene frequency of 0.105 for beta(S)(More)

Surgical cavernous-venous shunt may be proposed if conservative treatment fails. We examined the efficacy(More)
