Sickle cell anemia is the most common inherited blood disorder in the United States, affecting ab Americans or 1 in African Americans. SCA is characterized by episodes of pain, chronic hemolytic anemia and severe infections, usually beginning in early childhood.

sickle cell disease or sickle cell anemia, inherited disorder of the blood in which the oxygen-carrying hemoglobin pigment in erythrocytes (red blood cells) is abnormal.

This "hemoglobin-S" crystallizes in small capillaries, where the concentration of oxygen in the blood is low (but sufficient for normal hemoglobin), causing the red blood cells to assume distorted, sicklelike shapes.

Hope and Destiny-Authors:Alan Sacerdote M.D., Allen Platt, Allan F. Platt Jr. P.A.-C.M D Sacerdote An up-to-date, informative, and personal discussion of sickle-cell anemia, this guide provides information on medically proven methods of treatment along with patient vignettes.

Sickle cell disease is a lifelong, inherited blood disorder in which red blood cells are abnormally shaped (in a crescent, or "sickle" shape), which restricts the flow in blood vessels and limits.

Sickle cell anemia (SCA) is a disease that is caused by the formation of an abnormal hemoglobin type, which can bind with other abnormal hemoglobin molecules within the red blood cells (RBCs) to. Sickle cell anemia is a genetic disease of the blood.

It is caused by a defect in one gene of a person. Genes are the elements in cells that carry the information that determines traits, such as hair or eye color.

In sickle cell anemia, a defect in the gene controls how hemoglobin is made. This defect can be passed from parents to their children.
