The hematological and biochemical parameters were studied in sickle cell heterozygotes and homozygotes from different provinces of Saudi Arabia and the percentile ranges were calculated. This paper is the first in the series reporting percentile ranges for biochemical and hematological parameters in different hemoglobin S genotypes in the eastern province of Saudi Arabia and presents the percentile ranges in sickle cell anemia patients and sickle cell heterozygotes in comparison with the values encountered in the normal (Hb AA) individuals.

Keywords: Hemoglobin S (HbS), Hb AA, sickle cell heterozygotes, sickle cell homozygotes
