Abstract: The HPFH deletion type 2 was first described in a patient from Ghana and is characterized by a large deletion of approximately 105 kb extension. We report here the results obtained in studying a black Brazilian patient who presented an association of β-thalassemia and HPFH type 2, using a PCR strategy for detection of the breakpoint region. This procedure allows a rapid molecular identification of this condition and is a reliable procedure for screening patients with a hematological picture of HPFH deletion types.
