We report two Italian-Canadian families with α+-thalassemia (α+-thal) trait caused by a novel mutation of the translation initiation codon of the α1-globin gene (ATG>AAG or HBA1:c.2T>A). This is the tenth reported α-thal mutation involving the translation initiation codon or the conserved Kozak consensus sequences of the HBA2 or HBA1 genes.
