Sickle cell disease (SCD) is the world’s most common genetic disease, affecting more than 3 million people worldwide. Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) is an acquired form of intravascular hemolysis with a worldwide incidence of five to six cases per million people and a prevalence of 16 cases per million people. In this live symposium, 2 experts in the field of SCD and PNH will delve into the identification, diagnosis, treatment nuances, and overall management of these 2 classic hematologic malignancies using case studies as a practical guide. Additionally, our panel will discuss the implications of health inequities and how to address more accessible, equitable, cost-effective, and person-centered care for patients affected with PNH and SCD.




This activity is intended for hematologists-oncologists, pediatricians, primary care physicians, and other members of the larger multidisciplinary team.
