Thalassemia is one of the most common genetic diseases in the world. It has a relatively higher incidence in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern countries and presents a major public health and social challenge. This monograph updates the reader on the dental and orofacial characteristics of thalassemia major in Arab populations. Since very few detailed studies on these topics among Arabs have been published, the monograph attempts to bridge the knowledge gap in this area. Clinical, radiographic and odontometric features of the typical thalassemia major patient are clearly described in this book.
