Comments: Found in a 6-months infant boy and his father presented with homogeneous microcytic hypochromic anemia and decrease MCV, MVH and HbA2 level. The proband characterized by neonatal high Hb Bart’s (γ4) level (3.8%). The 72 Kb deletion removed both α-globin genes and also the HBZ, HBQ and part of the LUC7L genes.

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
