Hexokinase deficiency is an anemia-causing condition associated with inadequate hexokinase.[1][2] Specifically, the HK1 isozyme is involved.[3]

An acronym for Hexokinase deficiency is HK deficiency, and it is a genetic disease. The person must be homozygous for the trait, as being heterozygous would just make the person a carrier of that mutated gene. [4]
