From: An update on glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency in children from Brazzaville, Republic of Congo

Gender Genotype Genotype Frequency n (%)
Male B 67 (59.8)
  A+ 21 (18.8)
  A− 24 (21.4)
Female BB 46 (46)
  BA+ 22 (22)
  BA− 11 (11)
  A+A+ 4 (4)
  A+A− 14 (14)
  A−A− 3 (3)
Overall Aand AA 27 (13)
  1. G6PD genotype: male normal = A+ or B; male hemizygous = A−; female normal = BB or BA+ or A+A+; female heterozygous = BA− or A+A−; female homozygous = A−A−; Hb = haemoglobin; Italic = severe G6PD deficiency genotypes
