    00:01 G6PD, most common patients, African and Mediterranean descent.

    00:05 That’s important.

    00:06 If it’s a male, X-linked recessive, no choice.

    00:10 We are only given one X.

    00:11 In a female, it could be a trait.

    00:15 Please focus upon episodic, episodic, episodic hemolytic anemia.

    00:20 Why? Because are you going to be eating fava beans 24 hours a day? No, I hope not.

    00:27 So it’s only after exposure to that free radical is when you have the hemolytic anemia, is that clear? So you want to be very careful.

    00:35 Know as to how to dissect certain terms.

    00:40 Episodic is huge.

    00:42 So when you have episodic hemolytic anemia, you’re going to have pallor, fatigue and jaundice, infection, oxidized drugs.
