ABSTRACT:
A sample of 263 Sickle cell sufferers was collected from patients attending the Maharani Hospital, Jagdalpur for various ailments. On analysis of the collected data it has been revealed that the percentage of males and females in sickle cell patients is more or less equal. On further analysis it has been observed that 33.08 % are tribal patients in comparison to 66.92 % not tribal. It has further noticed that 3.04% of sickle cell patients belong to the Muslim and Christian communities and has broken the myth that sickle cell has not been found in the Muslim population of India.
