ConclusionsThis is the first report describing prevalence of SCD-related complications in the MU-SCD Cohort. We identified this population to have an increasing frequency of hemolytic complications and sickle cell nephropathy with advancing age. Onset of persistent proteinuria occurred in the second decade of life, followed by renal insufficiency or end stage renal disease in subsequent decades. As previously demonstrated in the Cooperative Study of Sickle Cell Disease and the Jamaican SCD Cohort study, renal insufficiency was a significant risk factor for early mortality. Further studies are required for identification of...

Conclusion Early onset of MoyaMoya syndrome related stroke postoperatively after laparoscopic cholecystectomy is difficult to be assessed immediately. Acute stroke is an infrequent disease of pediatric age group patients. MoyaMoya is a rare cerebrovascular disease of unknown etiology. Our patient is 7 year-old male child who presented immediately postoperatively with abnormal movement of right upper and lower limbs and right upper limb weakness, and no history of MoyaMoya syndrome, which is rare, but important cause of stroke in children. Cerebral revascularization surgery leads to favorable outcome. The present case highl...
