α‐Thalassemia, one of the most common genetic diseases, is caused by deletions or point mutations affecting one to four α‐globin genes. Molecular diagnosis is important to prevent the most severe forms of the disease. However, the diagnosis of α‐thalassemia is complex due to a high variability of the genetic defects involved, with over 250 described mutations. We summarize herein the findings of genetic analyses of DNA samples referred to our laboratory for the molecular diagnosis of α‐thalassemia, along with a detailed clinical description.
