A fourth observation of haemoglobin Stanleyville II has been made. The affected person was a 17-year-old female from the north-eastern area of the Congo Republic, which is entirely inhabited by Nilotes. The amino-acid substitution was found to be a replacement of the asparagine residue by one of lysine in the 78th position of the 141 of the α-chain.
