Thalassemia is the most common inherited hemoglobin disorder around the world. It is usually associated with normal serum lipid profile. However, there are a few reports in literature that hypertriglyceridemia has an association with beta-thalassemia major. We report a case of hypertriglyceridemia associated with beta-thalassemia major, in a 9-month-old female baby.
