Abstract

beta-Thalassemias are an inherited group of disorders of hemoglobin (Hb) and comprise the most common monogenic disorders in Azerbaijan. They are extremely heterogeneous at the molecular level. Here we report the first identification of a patient who is a compound heterozygote for two rare beta-thalassemia (beta-thal) mutations, IVS-I-130 (G>C) and codon 37 (TGG>TGA).
