Abstract

ore common in Iran, especially in coastal areas, it has an autosomal recessive pattern of inheritance and thus preventing the birth of infants with thalassemia major requires premarital blood tests. Materials and methods: This cross – sectional study was conducted on all couples with suspected types of blood dyscrasia (thalassemia and other blood disorders), in which demographic variables of blood dyscrasia were also investigated, including α - β, IDα - β, IDα - α, and α - S. Findings: In this study, 12030 people (6015 couples) participated, among them 9273 people (77.08%) were city dwellers and the rest were from rural areas, 3004 couples (49.94%) had consanguineous marriages and the highest prevalence of blood dyscrasia was related to α-αIDA with the prevalence of 861 (7.15%). Conclusion: The results show that the prevention of the birth of infants with thalassemia is the best solution, as high costs are needed for the treatment of these patients.
