Background: Delta-chain (δ-chain) variants are a group of rare hemoglobin (Hb) variants resulting from mutations within the δ-globin gene. Although quantification of Hb A2 levels is a useful screening tool for the beta-thalassemia trait, the coinheritance of a δ-globin gene mutation can lead to misinterpretation of diagnostic results.
