Contribution of neonatal screening to the diagnosis of congenital anemias of the newborn.

Hemoglobinopathies are a group of inherited blood diseases caused by genetic disorders that modify the molecular structure of hemoglobin. For the early diagnosis of these diseases it is important to do a newborn screening with biochemical and genetic studies. Moreover, the latter are essential for genetic counseling in carriers for future pregnancies and prenatal diagnosis.
