Hemoglobinopathies mimicking Hb S/beta-thalassemia: Hb S/S with alpha-thalassemia and Hb S/Volga.

Abstract

There are approximately 1200 known natural mutations of the human globin genes. In most clinical laboratories, the diagnosis of hemoglobin disorders is based on blood counts, hemoglobin electrophoresis, or column chromatography, which can identify common variant hemoglobins such as Hb S, C, and E, but are unable to definitively diagnose most other… (More)
