- Additional Document Info

A Chinese family with concurrent hereditary spherocytosis (HS) and haemoglobin (Hb) Q-Thailand is described. The Hb Q-Thailand mutation was found on the remaining alpha1 globin gene on a chromosome 16 containing the (-alpha 4.2) deletion. Active haemolysis in members of this family is segregated with the HS phenotype, and the Hb Q-Thailand in the heterozygous state does not seem to show any modulating effect on HS.
