ANEMIA DREPANOCÍTICA O DREPANOCITOSIS


Explanation:
SEGÚN MI DICCIONARIO MÉDICO
ANEMIA DREPANOCÍTICA (SICKLE CELL ANEMIA) Trastorno anémico grave, crónico incurable, que se produce en personas hemocigotas para la hemoglobina S (Hb S). La hemoglobina anormal provoca deformación y fragilidad de los eritrocitos. La anemia drepanocítica se caracteriza por crisis de dolor articular, trombosis y fiebre y por anemia crónica con esplenomegalia, letargo y debilidad. También denominada anemia de células falciformes

Luego de la advertencia de Javier observo que tiene razón. Por favor, descarta \"talasemia\", gracias.

  -> Tienes razón. Revisé mi trabajo y vi que ambos términos estaban en la misma frase denominando distintas enfermedades. Suerte que avisaste, gracias.
