Haemoglobin Baden is a rare variant haemoglobin which has only recently been clinically and functionally characterised. We present the case of a young adult male patient who presented with an erythrocytosis but was clinically asymptomatic. His mother was also diagnosed retrospectively having presented with erythrocytosis being treated with regular venesections. We discuss the management plan and potential significance of being a carrier of this rare haemoglobin variant.
