HbE- Thalassemia: A case report

Author(s):

Rimpi Devi

Abstract:

Thalassemia is a blood disorder passed down through families (inherited) in which the body makes an abnormal form or inadequate amount of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen. The disorder results in large numbers of red blood cells being destroyed, which leads to anemia. Symptoms include fatigue, weakness, paleness and slow growth. Mild forms may not need treatment. Severe forms may require blood transfusions or a donor stem-cell transplant. Mild forms may not need treatment. Severe forms may require blood transfusions or a donor stem-cell transplant.
