The concentration of hemoglobin A in red cell hemolysates from 81 children with malaria has been compared with that of 30 children without malaria living in the same environment. The result in subjects with malaria—2.39% ± 0.055 (mean ± )—was not significantly different from the value of 2.30% ± 0.12 in those without malaria (P > 0.2). No difference was found in the levels during and 2 months after an attack of malaria. It is concluded that, in the population studied, malaria does not affect the usefulness of a raised concentration of hemoglobin A in the diagnosis of beta thalassemia minor.
