alpha-Thalassemia (thal) is common all over the world. Most of the mutations encountered are of the deletional type. We now report two frameshift alpha-thal mutations: a novel alpha1-globin gene deletion at codon 62 (GTG -->-TG) found in an African American man, and a second report on an alpha2-globin gene deletion at codon 22 (GGC-->GG -) found in a Hispanic girl.
