Abstract

In Italy Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) used to be a disease of white Sicilian patients, but the recent immigration that has involved our Veneto Region faced health operators with its complex clinical management. Even though SCD was included in the Regional Register of rare diseases, no common policy of diagnosis, treatment and patient care had been developed at hospital or community level. Diagnosis and treatment were mainly case-directed.
