Thalassemia is different in kids with microcytic hypochromic anemia than general population because there is a confusion between symptoms of thalassemia and iron deficiency anemia in kids and both of them differ in management and prognosis. otherwise the most commonest causes of microcytic hypochromic anemia in kids are iron deficiency anemia and thalassemia and both of them are more common in kids than in general population.
Thalassemia is different in Egypt than anywhere in the world because there is no accurate estimation of incidence and prevalence of such dangerous disease in Egypt inspite of many cases attending thalassemia center (hundreds) and this disease is autosomal recessive and its incidence can be minimized by detection of carrier cases by gene study hopping that to be done as a routine premarital investigation.

Close Relatives Of β-thalassemia
Laboratory diagnostic tests as (CBC, Iron Study, Serum Ferritin, HPLC, Genetic study) will be done to Brothers, Sisters & Cousins of β-thalassemia Children With Microcytic Hypochromic Anemia Attending Assiut University Child Hospital
Diagnostic Test: CBC, Iron Study, Serum Ferrittin, HPLC,Genitic Study
high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) has become the preferred technique, as it can detect most of the clinically significant variants. polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based procedures detect Commonly occurring mutations of the HBB gene .
If targeted mutation analysis fails to detect the mutation, scanning or sequence analysis can be used. Sensitivity of both mutation scanning and sequence analysis is 99%.
- detection of thalassemia carriers in children with microcytic hypochromic anemia [ Time Frame: 2 years ]accurate detection of prevalence rate of thalassemia carriers among relatives of β-thalassemia
