Abstract

Sixty-five patients with hemoglobins AS, SC, and SS were investigated in a masked fashion. We observed a statistically significant positive correlation between the severity of conjunctival sickling signs and the counts of irreversibly sickled cells in each hemoglobinopathy group. We also observed a statistically significant positive correlation between the severity of the conjunctival vasculopathy and the percentage of sickle hemoglobin in the total group of patients with hemoglobins AS, SC, and SS.
