Thalassemia is the most common genetic disorder across the globe. In Pakistan beta thalassemia is common. Beta thalassemia is an inherited disorder and mode of inheritance is autosomal recessive. The frequency of beta thalassemia minor is 6 – 7 % in Pakistani population i.e. seven individuals out of hundred have beta thalassemia gene. Because of this high frequency of beta thalassemia gene in our population the propagation of beta thalassemia gene in homozygous state (beta thalassemia major) is not uncommon. According to Thalassemia Federation of Pakistan there is 5000 – 9000 child births annually with beta thalassemia major in Pakistan.
