This is a study on 62 G6PD patients hospitalized in Bahrami hospital between 1993 to 1995. Favea was the oxidant agent causing acute hemolysis in more than 90 percent of patients. Most of acute hemolysis occurred in spring, the season of high consumption of favea. More than 60 percent of patients had moderate to severe hemolysis with Hb less than 7 gr/dL. According to WHO reports, the incidence of G6PD is 7-12% in Iran and it is favism type. It is suggestive to prevent parents of sugh patients of favea consumption, which in turn decreases the rate of acute hemolysis, its complications, complications of transfusion and hospitalization in endemic area of Iran.
