AbstractA Chinese family in which two siblings suffer from haemogloblin (Hb) H disease due to (--SEA) α-globin gene deletion and α2-codon 30 (ΔGAG) mutation is described. Both siblings are transfusion-independent and have survived to adulthood. In contrast to previous report of hydrops fetalis associated with ζ-α-thal-1 and α2-codon 30 (ΔGAG) mutation, the ζ-globin genes are intact in the two siblings, which most probably alleviates the γ-chain excess and protects the fetus from severe anaemia. Correlation of genotype with phenotype in Hb H disease is important for genetic counselling, especially in the antenatal setting.
