19 August 2018 (Sunday) - Hb-opathy ?



Here’s an interesting case which appeared on the Haematoogy Interest Group Facebook page. To me it looks like a sickle cell carrier with a serious case of hereditary persistence of fetal haemaoglobin…but look at all those target cells. Is there some sort of thalassaemia too?
Having said that it is some years sinceI’ve done any haemoglobinopathy work.

Perhaps the most telling point here is the various comment made by people who supposedly have more than a passing knowledge of the field. Sickle cell disease? Hb E?
Some of the posts in this group should be taken with a very large pinch of salt…
