Also known as:

Comments: Hb E-Udon Thani is a form of Hb E-β-thalassaemia syndrome caused by a double mutation on a β-globin gene. Found as a heterozygote in a healthy proband with a history of constant hypochromic microcytosis without anaemia, resulting in elevated Hb A2 (5.7%) and an unusually low level of Hb E (3.1%).
