A female of Uttar Pradesh, of Indian origin, who had a transfusion-dependent child, carried codon 4 ACT-->ACA, codon 5 CCT-->TCT, and codon 6 GAG-->TAG mutations at the cis position. The mutation was detected through sequencing of the amplified beta-globin gene. Heterozygosity is expressed as a thalassemia trait with moderate anemia, low MCV (57 fl), raised HbA2 (6.7%), and normal fetal hemoglobin (1.4%).
