Thalassemia mnemonic


Quote by prof trying to explain how to remember the geographic distribution between alpha and beta thalassemia.

“Just remember that alpha stands for A, which can also stand for Africa and Asia…that’s where you’ll find alpha thalassemia endemically. 

For the beta thalassemia, just remember B stands for…mediterranean…”

if you close your eyes
does it almost feel like
nothing changed at all?
