Abstract

Background: Sickle cell anemia (SCA) is a common genetic disorder that causes considerable morbidity and mortality throughout the world. The study was performed in 82 Sudanese participants with sickle cell disease as study population with both sexes, age (2-12 years). Materials and Methods: Venous blood was collected using sterile disposable plastic syringe after cleaning the vein puncture area with 70% ethanol, the blood was added to the EDTA and gently mixed, then CBC was performed using (Sysmex-3000 plus) and (Electrophoresis) was done. Results: The results of this study show that most patients had raised level of hemoglobin F according to gender found that there were 43 males and 28 females had raised level of HbF, 7 males and 2 females were normal, and 36% of patients had raised level of HbA2 in both gender (20 males) (10 females). Conclusion: HbF in sickle cell anemia patients was found to be 85.3% (raised), HbS in sickle cell anemia patients was found to be 100% (raised) and HbA2 in sickle cell anemia patients was found to be 30.5% (Normal).
