Disorders

I need to know if my diagnoses of the following symptoms are correct before I start my research:
The 5-year-old African-American male is visiting his new pediatrician for a kindergarten physical and his mom tells the nurse that she carries the ¯Sickle Cell trait and wants Marcus screened for it.
I believe due to family history the mother wants her son tested for Sickle Cell Anemia

  1. I agree -- although this is not a diagnosis. Screening a child whose parent carries the sickle cell trait is usually done in infancy. Only that screening and a medical doctor can actually diagnose this disorder.

  2. You are correct a screening for the sickle cell tract for Marcus.

    All of my questions are only hypothetical scenarios for my class assignment and will not be used to provide a diagnoses.

  3. Ms. Sue, yes I agree this assignment is over simplified and I am just trying my best to complete it based on the assignment instructions.

    Thank you!
