Comments: The deletion was reported in a mixed European descent neonate presented with neonatal anaemia, thrombocytopenia and cutaneous extramedullary hematopoiesis. The propositus required multiple RBC and platelet transfusions in the first months of life. SNP microarray analysis identified a 59 kb deletion, including 3 genes in the β-globin cluster, the HBE, HBG1 and HBG2 genes, as well as the β-globin LCR, causing εγδβ thassaemia. The 5’ breakpoint is localised at position 5236469 and the 3’ breakpoint is localized at position 5295261 (coordinates: GRCh38.p13, NC_000011.10).

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
