Author(s): Diouf JBN, Noubadoum A, Sougou NM

Sickle cell anemia is an inherited hemoglobin disease caused by the substitution of valine for glutamic acid in position 6 of the ß chain of globin. It is the most common genetic disease in the world. Its severity is linked to its complications. Asplenia is a rare chronic complication due to repeated infarctions. The authors report a case of asplenia in a 12-year-old thalasso-sickle cell patient.
