G-6 PD deficiency and sickle cell anaemia were studied in Badhia Muslims of Purnia distrct (Bihar) which are migrated from West Bengal. In a sample size of 509, no case of G-6 PD deficiency and sickle cell anaemia were observed. Once upon a time, Purnia district was popularly known as Kala Pani due to its bad climate and malaria was endemic in this area. However, now a day the climate has improved and the area is not endemic to malaria. It needs further investigation to know if there is any correlation between decreasing trends of malaria with G-6-PD deficiency, and sickle cell anaemia


Keywords:G-6-PD deficiency, sickle cell anaemia, Badhiya Muslims, malarial endemicity and Purnia district
