Sickle Cell Disease – Pathophysiology, Clinical and Diagnostic Implications

Abstract

We review the current knowledge of the pathophysiology of sickle cell disease (SCD), the clinical complications and the state of the art in SCD diagnostics. Today, a flexible laboratory concept allows the fast and economic clarification of the patients' sickle cell hemoglobin (HbS) status, e.g. additional compound heterozygosities. In contrast to a well-investigated pathophysiology of the disease, factors influencing the severity of symptoms as well as some laboratory findings in SCD still lack a final explanation. In this review, we focus on red cell lysis resistance as an additional diagnostic tool in SCD. There is a need for further studies regarding lysis resistance in blood samples from patients with HbS.
