A deletion-type (delta beta)0-thalassemia with elevated production of fetal hemoglobin (Hb F) is described. The patient, homozygous for the disease, presented a clinical picture of beta-thalassemia intermedia. DNA analysis demonstrated that the deletion removed about 13 kb from the beta-globin cluster, including part of delta and the complete beta gene. The deletion appears to be identical to the previously described Sicilian deletion. Its presence in the homozygous state in a patient from Central Europe suggests that the deleted chromosome may be rather prevalent in that area.
