Hemoglobin C disease in infancy and childhood


Journal Article

We reviewed the clinical course, physical findings, and hematologic values in 16 pediatric patients with hemoglobin C disease, all but one identified by a newborn hemoglobinopathy screening program. The patients had few symptoms or physical findings. Height and weight percentiles were normal. Patients typically had a mild hemolytic anemia characterized by microcytosis and target cells. © 1994 Mosby-Year Book, Inc.
