The occurrence of carriers of abnormal haemoglobin S and C on Curacao

By Arie van der Sar


Various authors (van DER SAR, 1943 en 1949, HUISMAN et al., 1954 en 1955 and JONXIS, 1959) have pointed out the occurrence of carriers of haemoglobin S and C on Curacao. In 1949 BEEKMAN published a thesis entitled: klinische en haematologische studies over de sikkelcelziekte. Since then, and especially after the publication of PAULING in the same year, our knowledge concerning abnormal haemoglobins has markedly increased. A general survey of the occurrence of haemoglobinopathies on Curacao was however lacking. The purpose of this thesis is to filI up this gap. After a survey of the literature concerning haemoglobins S and C a description is given of the lesions that are found in carriers of abnormal haemoglobins on Curacao. Zie: Purpose of this thesis
