Thalassemia: A Comprehensive Review and Visual Assessment

With Terence Litavec

printable poster

Thalassemia is the name given to a collective group of related hemoglobinopathies. These inherited disorders were first identified in the Mediterranean, but they are now known to affect up to 280 million people in every continent on Earth to varying degrees of severity. Thalassemia patients can be asymptomatic carriers who unknowingly pass the genetic trait on to their children, which makes genetic counseling an indispensible tool for early detection and treatment.

This presentation will describe the different types of Thalassemia and the laboratory methods used to identify them. There will also be microscopic images of the common red blood cell abnormalities associated with Thalassemia and other similar hemoglobinopathies for comparison to aid in proper diagnosis.
