Sickle cell anemia: An overview

Sickle cell anemia is a disease caused by the production of abnormal hemoglobin. It binds with other abnormal hemoglobin molecules within the red blood cells and leads to rigid deformation of the cell. This deformation inhibits the ability of the cell to pass through small vascular channels, which may result in sludging and congestion of vascular beds, followed by tissue ischemia and infarction. Infarction is common throughout the body in a patient with sickle cell anemia and is responsible for the earliest clinical manifestation and acute pain crisis.

Tropical regions such as sub-Saharan Africa, tribal regions of India, and the Middle East, have the highest frequency of sickle cell anemia. About 75% of the total cases of sickle-cell diseases occur in Africa. Various studies conducted by the WHO have shown that 2% of the newborns in Nigeria have sickle cell anemia.
