What are Red Blood Cell Disorders?
There are multiple disorders of the red blood cells, including hemoglobinopathies, Cytoskeletal abnormalities (spherocytosis, other membranopathies) and Enzymopathies.
Hemoglobinopathies are a group of rare, inherited disorders involving abnormal structure of the hemoglobin molecule. These disorders include hemoglobin C disease, hemoglobin S-C disease, sickle cell anemia, and various types of thalassemia.
Red Blood Cell Disorders are treated by our Division of Pediatric Hematology.
