Sickle Cell Anemia is an inherited, chronic disease of red blood cells. A single chemical substitution in the hemoglobin molecule causes the cell to take a hard sickle shape instead of the soft doughnut shape that normally allows red cells to easily move through blood vessels. This abnormality results in blood flow blockages. The pain and other complications experienced by people with sickle cell disease are caused by these blockages and by anemia, which can lead to increased morbidity and mortality.
