Haematological factors in 42 Nigerian patients with homozygous sickle cell disease (SS) and leg ulcers was the subject of this study. The results suggest that this complication is associated with high haemoglobin and low fetal haemoglobin levels. The role of the significantly higher mean platelet count (P less than 0.05) in male patients than in controls is not clear.
