Abstract: We have studied five children with homozygous sickle cell anemia (SCA) without associated alpha thalassemia receiving partial exchange transfusions designed to maintain the percent hemoglobin (Hb) S between 30 and 35% for management of large cerebral vessel vasculopathy (LCVV). Ages ranged from 5 11 /12 to 13 7/ 12 years. All patients while on transfusion therapy experienced a striking absence of morbidity associated with SCA (187 patient/months).
