RBC Sickle Cell Trait

Often tested in USMLE and perhaps more than the disease!

Classic clues in the case are:

  • African American
  • Developed dyspnea in Denver (high altitude)
  • Sudden death after sustained prolonged exercise
  • Rhabdomyolyis and red urine
  • Renal papillary necrosis and sloughing
  • Heterozygote Hemoglobin electrophoresis blot
