    Sickle cell disease is an inherited blood disorder that affects more than 90,000 Americans, mostly of African descent. The condition arises from a genetic defect that alters the structure of hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying protein found in red blood cells. Sickle cell disease SCD is a group of blood disorders typically inherited from a person's parents. The most common type is known as sickle cell anaemia SCA. It results in an abnormality in the oxygen-carrying protein haemoglobin found in red blood cells. This leads to a rigid, sickle-like shape under certain circumstances. Sickle cell disease SCD is a group of inherited red blood cell disorders. In SCD, the red blood cells become hard and sticky and look like a C-shaped farm tool called a “sickle.” People with SCD can live full lives and enjoy most of the activities that other people do.

    The terms "sickle cell crisis" or "sickling crisis" may be used to describe several independent acute conditions occurring in patients with SCD, which results in anaemia and crises that could be of many types, including the vaso-occlusive crisis, aplastic crisis, sequestration crisis, haemolytic crisis, and others. The inset image shows a cross-section of a sickle cell with long polymerized sickle haemoglobin (Hb S) strands stretching and distorting the cell shape to look like a crescent.
