Itano (1) first described hemoglobin D in 1951 in a Caucasian family who had hemoglobin S interacting with D. Hemoglobin D was the fifth hemoglobin to be described. To date, 11 cases of hemoglobin S-D disease have been reported in the literature. It is the purpose of this paper to report four additional cases of hemoglobin S-D disease in unrelated Negro families. Since patients with hemoglobin S-D disease present with anemia, circulating sickle cells in the venous blood, and a hemoglobin that migrates with hemoglobin S on paper electrophoresis at pH 8.6, they are frequently diagnosed as sickle cell anemia.
