    The major features of sickle cell disease in most patients are life-long anemia and the recurrent vaso-occlusion. This book discusses the pathophysiology of sickle cell disease and hemoglobinopathies, along with the diagnosis and assessment of the risk/benefit ration for particular treatments.

Sickle cell disease is one of the 'grand' diseases in the terminology of Victorian Sickle-cell disease book, because its widespread and multitudinous manifestations may affect any organ system in the body.

Sickle cell disease was one of the first diseases to be explained at the molecular level. In the years since the first edition of this book was published, further advances have been made, and much has been learned about the causes of variability in the natural history of the disease and of the reasons why there are such distinct variations in the patterns of morbidity and mortality.

In sickle cell disease, red blood cells make an abnormal form of beta-globin. This can cause red blood cells to become sickle-shaped, in the form of a crescent.

This abnormal shape causes the red blood cells to have problems traveling through blood vessels, so certain tissues in a child’s body do not receive enough blood.
