Radiological Bone Manifestation of Sickle Cell Anaemia in Sudanese Patients

Sickle cell anaemia (SCA) is a disease caused by production of abnormal haemoglobin, which binds with other abnormal haemoglobin molecules within the red blood cell to cause rigid deformation of the cell. This deformation impairs the ability of the cell to pass through small vascular channels, sludging and congestion may result, followed by ischaemia and infarction of the tissue. This is a...
