Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G-6-PDH) Deficiency is an X-linked disorder. Males who inherit an abnormal gene are invariably affected. Heterozygote females usually have approximately 50% G-6-PDH enzyme activity. It is most common in the Mediterranean, the Middle East, South East Asia and West Africa. It is rare among Caucasians.
