Objectives: In this paper, we apply the concept of pure fractions to create a mathematical model for the control of Thalassemia disease. Methods: The theory of pure fractions has generated various properties that make it suitable for formalizing the uncertain information upon which medical diagnosis and treatment is usually based. In this study we use pure fraction to generate a mathematical model for Thalassemia disease diagnosis. Findings: Thalassemia disease is one of the medical problems which could be controlled by premarital screening. This disease has major sign and symptoms in the first year of life. The objective of the work is to diagnose Thalassemia using pure fractions. The proposed model would help the health center to automate Thalassemia risk in future generation and to improve the medical care. Application: The proposed method is apply to various other genetic diseases such as G6PD deficiency etc.
