Medical Reference Publication

Excerpt
Sickle cell disease (SCD) is a common inherited disorder of haemoglobin. The disease cannot be cured but its various and variable manifestations can be effectively treated and often prevented, to allow the patient to lead a long and useful life. This brief manual is an attempt to summarize the current state of knowledge of the management of SCD. Each country has its own specific problems and differs in its pharmaceutical policies. Some sections of the manual should be altered to suit local needs and capacities of the health care system.
