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
