This prospective study showed that thalassaemic patients, though susceptible to streptococcal infection, as evident from their elevated A.S.O. titres, are not, as has been suggested, more likely to develop acute glomerulonephritis than the rest of the population. The incidence of thalassaemic trait found among typical cases of acute glomerulonephritis does not exceed that of the general Thai population. There were 5 out of 56 cases of thalassaemic patients having transient microscopic haematuria.
