  Sickle Cell Disorder is an inherited hemoglobinopathy occurring mainly in West African populations.

  The red blood cells (erythrocytes) in affected individuals as sume a sickle shape thus compromising the cells’ oxygen carrying capacity and life span. Hemoglobin S (HbS) is devastating in its homozygote form causing chronic anaemia and complications. The heterozygote form of the disorder often exists with normal Hemoglobin A i.e. HbAS and less frequently with Hemoglbin C as HbSC.
