Abstract

We report data on a fetus with hydrops fetalis due to a homozygosity for α-thalassemia-1, type -(α)-20.5 kb; this is the first reported case in a Turkish family. Characterization of the abnormality was based on data from family studies and from α-globin gene mapping of the DNA from the parents.
