About Disease: Thalassemia Major occurs when a child inherits two mutated genes, one from each parent. Children born with Thalassemia Major usually develop the symptoms of severe anaemia within the first year of life. They lack the ability to produce normal, adult haemoglobin and experience chronic fatigue. Regular blood transfusions are the only treatment available to patients with thalassemia.
