Iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) is the most common microcytic hypochromic anaemia world wide.11,12 Iron deficiency modulates the synthesis of Hb-A2, resulting in reduced Hb-A2 levels in patients with IDA.13 Affected individuals show RBC morphological change of microcytosis, hypochromia, anisocytosis and poikilocytosis.
