Abstract

Acute splenic sequestration crisis (ASSC) is a common complication of sickle cell anemia in children. ASSC is generally not seen in adults with the SS genotype but occasionally can be seen in adults with the SC genotype. We present a case of fulminant ASSC in an adult with hemoglobin SC who developed high fever, intense abdominal pain, leukocytosis, and jaundice.
