. This included high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and Hb electrophoresis.
The global geographical distribution of the haemoglobinopathy
genes is today well documented [3, 4] and it is well known that in Europe, such genes are endogenous mainly in the populations of the south, especially in the countries of the Mediterranean basin and to a lesser extent in some of the countries of Eastern Europe.

disorders like sickle cell disease, thalassaemia and G6PD deficiency.
However, most of our patients with high Hb in the F window were mostly homozygous [beta]-thalassaemia patients or double heterozygous [beta] thalassaemia/ haemoglobinopathy
patients confirmed by Hb-electrophoresis and family studies.

 Haematological alterations associated with malaria are well recognised, but specific changes may vary with the level of malaria endemicity and patient background, haemoglobinopathy
, nutritional status, demographic factors and malaria immunity.
