Fractures occur frequently in patients with homozygous beta-thalassemia. A study was made of the fractures noted in a group of patients who were followed at the Thalassemia Clinic at The New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center. Results indicate that these patients often sustain fractures which are multiple and which frequently heal with resultant deformities.
