Laboratory abnormalities include hyposthenuria, hyponatraemia, hypokalaemia, and hypochloraemic metabolic alkalosis associated with increased urinary loss of sodium, potassium, chloride and calcium.
SCT is benign for most carriers; however, studies have been published suggesting its association in some persons with various conditions, including renal medullary carcinoma, hematuria, renal papillary necrosis, hyposthenuria, splenic infarction, exercise-related deaths, thromboembolic disease, pregnancy-related complications, complicated hyphema, and acute chest syndrome (7).
Hyposthenuria refers to an inability to concentrate urine maximally and is a common renal abnormality in SCD.
