Abstract

SINCE its discovery in 1956 by Thorup et al.1 in an American Negro woman, haemoglobin J has been identified in other ethnic groups including Gujerati Indians2,3, Indonesians4,5, French-Canadian6 and Swedish-American7 Caucasians, Algerians8, Chinese in Singapore9, Hakkanese Chinese in Taiwan10, and Hawaiian-Chinese-Caucasians11. This communication concerns the occurrence of haemoglobin J in a Thai family; the family is of special interest because it has haemoglobin E in addition to J.
