A 19-year-old man who participated in the thalassemia screening program was found to have a normal hematological parameter with a slightly elevated mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) and RDW (CV). The high-performance liquid chromatography also shows normal hemoglobin (Hb) F and Hb A2, but falls within the α-thalassemia trait and became suspected in the presence of a Hb variant. Hb electrophoresis was performed and molecular characterization was done with Sanger sequencing, and then identified the variant as Hb J-Meerut. Proper identification of such variant Hb could avoid mismanagement of diabetic patients as it is earlier reported to show a falsely lower level of HbA1c than expected.
