Comprensión de la enfermedad de células falciformes

La enfermedad de células falciformes es una afección en la que los glóbulos rojos tienen la forma de una hoz o luna creciente, en lugar de verse como discos redondeados. Estas células se atascan y bloquean los vasos sanguíneos pequeños, lo que impide que la sangre se mueva como debería. Esto puede causar dolor y lesiones en los órganos.
