Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is common in tropical Sub-Saharan countries. The allele most frequently associated with G6PD deficiency in this a region is G6PD 376G/202A. Here, we show that, the prevalence of G6PD deficiency is 12% in the Sereer ethnic group from Senegal ant that the 376G/968C genotype is predominant; the frequency of the 376G/202A genotype is very low in this ethnic group.
