Abstract

We encountered two patients with abnormally low glycohemoglobin levels in spite of normal plasma glucose levels. Since the presence of an abnormal hemoglobin was suggested by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), gene analysis of these two patients was conducted by single-strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP) analysis followed by direct sequencing, and Hb Kamakura with one base substitution (β3 Leu→Val) in the β globin gene was detected in both patients. There has been only one report of Hb Kamakura in Kanagawa Prefecture, and our patients represent the second and third cases, respectively.
