The authors of March's Clinical Case Study provided us with three exclusive questions that will not appear in the published version of the Case.

  1. How do the biochemical properties of methemoglobin differ from those of reduced hemoglobin?
  2. What are causes of methemoglobinemia?
  3. What laboratory methods are available for investigating hemoglobinopathies? What are the advantages and limitations of each?
