Talasemia

La talasemia es un trastorno hereditario que afecta la producción de hemoglobina normal (un tipo de proteína de los glóbulos rojos que transporta oxígeno a los tejidos del cuerpo). La talasemia incluye varias formas diferentes de anemia. La gravedad y el tipo de anemia dependen del número de genes que estén afectados.

Este trastorno es común en las poblaciones de la costa del Mediterráneo, áfrica y el sudeste asiático. La señal y síntoma que se presenta en todas las formas de talasemia es la anemia (una deficiencia de glóbulos rojos), en varios grados, desde leve a grave.

En el directorio de abajo hay información adicional relativa a los dos tipos diferentes de talasemia, para los cuales le proveemos una breve descripción.
