Beta thalassemia is a chronic blood disorder characterised by decreased production of beta globin chains and excess accumulation of the other globin chains. Multiple endocrinopathies in β thalassemia major patients are common. Because of iron overload, multiple endocrinopathies are still prevalent despite extensive chelation therapy. Usuallylife expectancy may be increased by regular blood transfusions, butthere might begrowth problems, thyroid dysfunctions, hypoparathyroidism and hypocalcaemia. Here we are presentingaunusual case of various endocrinologicaldys functions in a chronic case of β thalassemia major.
