Five patients had angioid streaks associated with sickle cell haemoglobinopathy. Other diseases associated with angioid streaks were ruled out, as was elastic tissue degeneration in sickle cell patients. After studying over 350 patients, we believe the incidence of angioid streaks in sickle cell disease to be between 1 and 2 per cent.
