In 1910 J. B. Herrick1 first reported the association of sickle shaped erythrocytes with severe anemia and certain clinical symptoms now recognized as the clinical entity termed sickle cell anemia. In 1923 and 1924 Sydenstricker2, 3 and Huck4 pointed out its relative frequency. There have been many subsequent articles concerning various features of this disease, but it was thought worthwhile to report the general clinical manifestations as observed in the present series of cases. During the period January, 1936 to January, 1946 there were 48 cases of active sickle cell anemia treated in the medical wards of Kings County Hospital.
