Caption: Sickle cell disease clinic. Nurse giving pain relief to a patient with sickle cell disease. An episode of pain in such a patient is called a vaso-occlusive crisis, and can require inpatient care. Also known as sickle cell anaemia and drepanocytosis, this is an inherited blood disease that largely affects black people. The blood's red blood cells contain abnormal haemoglobin that distorts them into a fragile sickle shape. This means they are easily destroyed, leading to symptoms of anaemia. Severe cases can require blood transfusions to replace the red blood cells.
