β-Thalassemia Major in a Malay Autistic Patient

Normal adult hemoglobin (Hb) consists of two pairs of globin, two α, and two β-chains. When the β-globin chain structure or function is altered, in which one or both copies fail to produce normal β-globin, the α-globin gene continues its normal α-globin production. The imbalance of α/β-globin chain synthesis, most evidently in homozygous forms, leads to the accumulation of free a-globin chains, which then form highly toxic aggregates.
