Sickle cell disease is a genetic disorder characterized by abnormal hemoglobin molecules in red blood cells, leading to their deformation into a sickle or crescent shape. These abnormal cells can cause blockages in blood vessels, leading to episodes of pain, organ damage, and increased susceptibility to infections. Although there is no cure, management of sickle cell disease involves a combination of medications to alleviate symptoms, blood transfusions, and treatments to prevent complications, such as hydroxyurea and bone marrow transplantation in severe cases.
