Brief Summary:

Gall bladder status among children with chronic haemolytic anemia attending to Assuit University Children Hospital.

Hemolysis is defined as the premature destruction of red blood cells (RBCs) (a shortened RBC life span). Anemia results when the rate of destruction exceeds the capacity of the marrow to produce RBCs. Normal RBC survival time is 110-120 days (half-life: 55-60 days), and thus, approximately 0.85% of the most senescent RBCs are removed and replaced each day.

Patients with chronic haemolytic anemia are subjected to many complications of chronic haemolytic anemia e.g anemic heart failure, complications of blood transfusion as hepatitis and AIDS, hypersplenism, haemosiderosis ,among them there is incidence of gallbladder stone formation.

This work aims to a) to determine the prevalence of gall bladder diseases among patient with chronic haemolytic anemia.

b) to determine the risk factors of gall bladder diseases among patients with chronic haemolytic anemia.
