Background: Present study was carried out with objectives of creating a profile for cases of hemoglobinopathies coming at NHL medical college and comparing the results obtained in present study with those of various studies done in India and abroad. Materials and methods: The study was carried out at the Department of Pathology, N.H.L. Municipal Medical College, Ahmedabad. A total of 35 cases of thalassemias and other hemoglobinopathies were studied. The criteria for case selection were…

Prevalence of Hemoglobinopathies in Tribal Region of India: A Retrospective Observational Study
TLDR
In India, hemoglobin disorders are the great threat for tribal population and the non-tribal community has more prevent than tribal communities.
Diagnosis And Haematological Parameters of VariousHaemoglobinopathies in Paediatric Age Group by Using Cation Exchange High Performance Liquid Chromatography-A Hospital Based Crosssectional Study
Haemoglobinopathies particularly β thalassaemia and sickle cell anemia are the most commonly encountered single gene disorders in the world; as so in India. About 4.5% of the world’s population
Importance of Family Studies with High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) in Hemoglobin Disorders: An analysis of 37 Families
The hemoglobin inherited disorders are one of the commonest single-gene disorders in man. Frequency of carriers of hemoglobinopathies varies from 3 to 17% in India. It is estimated that around 5.35%
Study of Haematological Profile of Thalassemia Patients With Reference To High Performance Liquid Chromatography
TLDR
High Performance Liquid Chromatography was found to be simple, rapid and reliable method for detection of thalassemia and highlights the need of community based targeted awareness, counselling and field work in these cases which is possible by using HPLC.
Family Study a tool to diagnose variant haemoglobinopathies and ambivalent cases
The Objective of this study is to diagnose variant haemoglobinopathies and ambivalent cases with the help of family studies in tertiary care hospital where genetic testing is not available. Methods.
Serum Fasting Lipid Profile of Children with β- Thalassemia Major in Peshawar, Pakistan
TLDR
The study revealed that deranged lipid profile is not uncommon in β-thalassemia patients irrespective of age and gender and proposed that lipid profile should be evaluated in these patients as low HDL and raised TC: HDL are important tools for coronary risk assessment.

TLDR
A new deletion leading to major thalassaemia is described and it is established that the erythropoietin production is adequate in this disease and some manifestations of iron overload, including polyendocrinopathy, are illustrated.
Anemia in infancy and childhood. A systematic approach to evaluation.
TLDR
The evaluation of the infant or child with possible anemia requires accurate testing and use of age-specific reference standards for normal values, and addition of the reticulocyte index to these tests allows subdivision of these anemias according to three different pathogenetic mechanisms.
Sickle cell-beta+ thalassaemia in Orissa State, India.
TLDR
Clinically there were no significant differences between the genotypes indicating that the low levels of HbA in this condition were insufficient to modify the clinical features, and this finding should facilitate the introduction of a prenatal diagnosis programme aimed at the prevention of beta thalassaemia or S beta+ thalASSaemia in that population.
Inherited haemoglobin disorders: an increasing global health problem.
TLDR
It takes considerable time to establish expertise in developing programmes for the control and management of these conditions, and the lessons learned in developed countries will need to be transmitted to those countries in which they occur at a high frequency.
Anemia in infancy and childhood.
The definition, clinical manifestations, and causes of anemia in childhood are age-related and reflect the dynamic processes of growth and development during this period. Although the possible causes
