In the Homozygote form of b-thal(absent b chain) there is marrow expansion so "crew cut" and "chipmunk facies" and in 3 allele deleted form of a-thal there is VERY LITTLE a-globin chain production. I wonder why this doesnt cause marrow expansion as it did in B-thal.
Pls someone explain this,
Thank you. :):)
