Below are the details of the disease.

THALASSEMIA INTER-MEDIA
Thalassemia Intermedia is a milder form of Thalassemia that is caused by one of the more severe thalassemic genes and one of the milder thalassemic genes. Children with Thalassemia intermedia start to develop symptoms later in life than those with Thalassemia major, usually becoming pale and developing symptoms around 2 years of age. They are moderately anemic but a large number of the patients survive without regular blood transfusions.
THALASSEMIA MINOR
In Thalassemia minor, the hemoglobin genes are inherited during conception, one from the mother (egg) and one from the father (sperm). People with a Thalassemia trait in one gene are known as carriers or are said to have Thalassemia minor. The only way to know if you carry the Thalassemia trait is to have a special blood test called hemoglobin electrophoresis which can identify the gene. The carriers of Thalassemia minor become anemic or slightly anemic.
THALASSEMIA MAJOR
The severe form of Thalassemia, Thalassemia major, occurs when a child inherits two mutated genes, one from each parent. Children born with Thalassemia major usually develop the symptoms of severe anemia within the first year of life. They lack the ability to produce normal adult hemoglobin (red blood cells). Children with Thalassemia major are so chronically fatigued they fail to thrive and do not grow normally. Left untreated, this disorder will cause bone deformities and eventually will lead to death within the first decade of the child's life.
