The clinical and biological heterogeneity of sickle cell hemoglobin (Hb) C disease (SC disease) is similar to sickle cell anemia, but has a much milder course. The effect of genetic factors such as alpha thalassemia or beta-globin gene haplotype has been analyzed in a limited number of cases. In this work, we report about 114 adult SC patients, aged 15 to(More)
