A retrospective study found no pulmonary hypertension in 50 individuals with thalassemia intermedia treated with hydroxyurea for seven years [ Karimi et alTaher et al ]. Prenatal diagnosis is available not only in cases of high-risk pregnancies but also in indeterminate-risk pregnancies. Blood analysis shows reduced Hb levels 50 12 Differential diagnosis Differential diagnosis is usually simple but may include genetic sideroblastic anemias, congenital dyserythropoietic anemias, and other conditions with high levels of HbF such as juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia and aplastic anemias; see these terms.

While most centers would consider decisions regarding prenatal testing to be the choice of the parents, discussion of these issues is appropriate.
