The objective of this retrospective case control study was to compare pregnant women with sickle trait hemoglobin to their normal hemoglobin counterparts. Sickle trait was associated with a significant increase in bacteriuria (13.0% vs 9.0%) and pyelonephritis (2.1% vs 1.4%). No difference was seen in birthweight between the two groups.
