Abstract
In French. L’anémie falciforme est une maladie héréditaire qui affecte l’hémoglobine contenue dans les globules rouges. La maladie cause la déformation des globules rouges, qui sont habituellement ronds et flexibles et qui glissent les uns sur les autres dans tous les vaisseaux sanguins du corps. Toutefois, chez les personnes atteintes d’anémie falciforme les globules rouges sont coudés ou en forme de C et rigides. Les globules rouges déformés peuvent s’accumuler dans les petits vaisseaux sanguins et bloquer la circulation du sang. Ce blocage empêche le sang et l’oxygène de se rendre aux organes. On parle alors de « crise drépanocytaire ». Ce genre de crises peut causer de grandes douleurs, endommager les organes, entraîner des infections graves et causer des accidents vasculaires cérébraux (AVC). Les cellules déformées ne vivent pas aussi longtemps, ce qui entraîne une pénurie de globules rouges, nommée anémie. What is the Maritime Newborn Screening service? Who, what, why and how baby is tested; explanation of disorders and test results.
