Were you looking for information about Thalassemia? Thallasemia is a common misspelling of thalassemia.
 
Thalassemia is an inherited disorder that involves problems with the production of hemoglobin in red blood cells. People with this condition may have mild to severe anemia because they do not have enough hemoglobin or red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout the body. Once a diagnosis is made (through blood tests and special hemoglobin studies), treatment for thalassemia can be recommended based on the type and severity of the disease.
