Comments: Found in a 24-year-old Chinese presented with normal hematological indices and no clinical symptoms. The variant also found in compound heterozygosity with Hb E [IthaID: 88] and the deletional --SEA [IthaID: 309] in a 14-year-old Thai boy presented with chronic hypochromic microcytic anaemia and occasional blood transfusions. His father who carried only the Hb Beijing and Hb E presented with normal hematological indices. HPLC analysis shown reduced HbA levels and the present of HbE and the abnormal Hb Beijing (39.1 %, 14.7 %) in both boy and father respectively.

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
