Abstract

β Thalassemia minor is frequent in mediterranean countries. It is a benign disorder and does not warrant any therapeutical intervention. We transplanted a 25-year-old Turkish male who was diagnosed as lymphoblastic lymphoma and had β thalassemia minor as well. He received peripheral blood stem cells transplantation from his HLA-identical sibling who was not a carrier of β thalassemia. After the allogeneic transplantation we did not only observe remission of the lymphoblastic lymphoma but also the disappearance of β thalassemia minor.
