Contrary to reports in the literature, we found no statistical difference between the prevalence of atopic disorders (asthma, hayfever, and atopic dermatitis) in patients with sickle-cell anemia and their prevalence in nonsickle-cell reference populations. We examined this issue by determining the prevalence of atopy in a sickle-cell anemia population.
