- a serious bacterial infection caused by the ability of the spleen to filter mikroorganisrne inadequate.
- Splenomegaly due to lymphatic cleanse dead cells, sometimes causing an acute crisis.
- In 1949, Linus Pauling said that sickle cell anemia a molecular disease, this assumption is based on differences in electrophoretic mobility of hemoglobin in the blood cells in patients with homozygous sickle cell (HbSS) compared with individuals who have normal hemoglobin A and heterozygous U.S.. Today, hemoglobin electrophoresis is used to identify the presence of sickle cell hemoglobin and confirm the disease.

Causes of spleen sequestration is not known with certainty, but may occur with fever and pain. The spleen is often removed after the sequestration event. The absence of the spleen resulted in lowering the ability of individuals respond to the infection process.
