-Anaemia is commonest haematological disorder that can occur in pregnancy. Thalassemia syndromes are commonly found genetic disorders of the blood. Beta thalassemia is considered as most common single gene disorder in our country. Detection of thalassemia is increasing nowadays. If a female with trait marries a person of similar trait, baby can develop thalassemia major which is lethal. Failure to differentiate iron deficiency anemia from thalassemia may lead to iron load which is hazardous to patient. So we conducted this study to know the proportion of thalassemia trait in our institution so we can add it to our routine ANC profile. Materials and Methods: A prospective cross-sectional study was conducted from October 2017-October 2019 after due permission from ethical committee.
