Also known as:

Comments: The insertion of TGAT within codon 116 (CAT>CTGATAT) generates a frameshift and a premature termination codon between codons 138 and 139. Found among members of a family who are Tamil refugees residing in Switzerland. Found in combination with HBB:c.364G>C (Hb D-Punjab) in a yound child presenting with microcytic anaemia. Found in a heterozygous state in the father.
