Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to report the case of an 8-week-old infant with sickle cell anemia and acute splenic sequestration crisis. He had been identified in the newborn screening program, and his parents and primary physician had been informed about the risk of serious complications during infancy. The resultant prompt diagnosis and management of acute splenic sequestration crisis in this young patient proved lifesaving.
