Complications of Sickle Cell Anemia

Sickle cell disease can block the flow of blood in arteries in many parts of the body, causing many complications. The hallmark of sickle cell disease is the sickle cell crisis, which causes sudden attacks of severe pain. Acute chest syndrome, which is triggered by an infection or by blockage of blood vessels in the lungs, is another common and serious occurrence. Additional medical complications include:   

    Anemia
    Bone and joint problems
    Eye damage in the retina
    Gallbladder disease
    Infections
    Kidney problems
    Leg sores and ulcers
    Liver problems
    Priapism (prolonged and painful erections)
    Pulmonary hypertension (increased pressure in the arteries of the lungs)
    Spleen damage
    Stroke
