Abstract

Concomitant hereditary spherocytosis and sickle cell trait, although extremely rare, could potentially lead to splenic sequestration or infarction. We report here the first case of splenic infarction in a child with hereditary spherocytosis and sickle cell trait while flying on a commercial aircraft. The presence of hypoxia, hemoconcentrated erythrocytes, and sickle hemoglobin created the perfect environment for clinical sequelae.
