Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A case of hypertriglyceridemia in association with homozygous β-thalassemia in an 11-month-old female infant is reported. The hypertriglyceridemia proved to be secondary, as it was indicated by clinical features as well as laboratory findings. Attention is called to a possible alteration of lipid metabolism in association with thalassemia major.
