Globally, thalassaemia occurs in approximately 4 of every 10,000 births. In 2018, the Malaysian Thalassaemia Registry recorded a total of 7,984 thalassaemia patients. Although the Malaysian registry recorded a decreasing trend in thalassaemia births from 2013 to 2018, this disorder is still the most common hereditary hemoglobinopathy. This module aims to provide physicians with a comprehensive overview of the different thalassaemia phenotypes and the available treatment options.
