Sickle Cell Anemia
Sickle Cell Anemia is a hereditary genetic disorder in which there is mutations in HBB gene. One particular HBB gene mutation produces an abnormal version of beta-globin known as hemoglobin S (HbS). HbS has can distort red blood cells into a sickle or crescent shape. The sickle-shaped red blood cells are incapable of carrying oxygen and die prematurely, which often lead to severe anemia. Sickle Cell Anemia is a genetic abnormality which is be inherited from parent to progeny and follows autosomal recessive pattern of inheritance. If both the parents are carrier there are 25% chances of their children carrying the faulty gene.
