Objectives: Low bone mineral density has been reported in children with beta thalassemia major, they also have increased propensity to fracture. We have studied DXA and pQCT variables in poorly chelated 3 to 18 year old thalassaemic patients and their relationship with fractures in this population.Methods: We studied 167, 3 to 18 year old children (Girls 72) with beta thalassemia major. Bone measurements were performed by GE iDXA (Lumbar Spine, Total bod...
