Sickle Cell Disease with Ulcerative Colitis as a Presenting Feature


Siddharth Bhattacharjee* and Ganesh N Ramesh

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is an inherited blood condition which is most common among people of African, Arabian and Indian origin. The sickle gene is widespread among many tribal population groups in India with prevalence of heterozygotes varying from 1-40 percent. It seems to be a North-South divide with more ulcerative colitis (UC) in North and Crohn’s disease (CD) in South India.
