ANTHROPOMETRY

Inherited disorders of blood have been among the first diseases in man in whichMendelian Inheritance had been established . Bleeding diseases like haemophilias had been discussed in ancient texts and known to be passed from mother to son. With the improved molecular methods of analysis it has now been established thathaemoglobinopathies including thalassaemias are the commonest single gene disorders known in man.Red cells have been found to have many inherent defects, both of structure and function. Red cell enzyme defects like G6PD deficiency is also the commonest Xlinked disorder in man. Structural red cell defects like spherocytosis, elliptocytosis,acanthocytosis are inherited disorders which may cause anaemias. In the present special issue of Inherited Disorders of Blood, some topics are being discussed by experts in different subjects of the field. It is hoped that it will open up new fields of research in human genetics.
