Genetic Anemia
Posted by: Paula McDonald Deml (ID *****3999) Date: November 01, 2003 at 09:57:36
  of 584

I am doing some research for a cousins daughter. She has recently been diagnosed with a rare form of Anemia, and has asked me to see if I can find out if any other family members have had this problem, and what they ended up doing.
I am posting to all the names I have found in her family tree - some going back 16-17 generations.

What I know about this form of Anemia:
1. Occurs in about 1 in a Million People
2. Genetic. Found in individuals with North European, Mediterranean or French descent
3. Can skip up to 5 generations
4. Males are carries - Females become symptomatic

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
