An 18-year-old man of Irish ancestry was found to have hemolytic anemia associated with a deficiency of red-cell glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase. Characterization of the partially purified enzyme showed it to differ from previously described variants. It was electrophoretically slow, showed decreased activity with deamino nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP), and was stable to heat. The abnormal enzyme has been named G-6-PD Carswell.
