WHIG Webinar "Hemoglobinopathieën bij de huisarts: bloedserieus?!"

19 mei 2021, Online

Met Associate Professoren Isa Houwink & Kees Harteveld (LUMC) en voorzitter van patiëntenvereniging Oscar, Elmas Citak


Door het stijgen van de migrantenpopulatie in Nederland en met name in de grote steden, komt de huisarts steeds vaker met hemoglobinopathieën in aanraking.
Bij patiënten met hemoglobinopathieën, die bijvoorbeeld lijden aan sikkelcelziekte, HbH-ziekte of alfa/bèta-thalassemie, is er door een afwijkend hemoglobine sprake van anemie, waarbij de klachten kunnen variëren van mild tot zeer ernstig. Hoewel dragers van hemoglobinopathieën zelf geen klachten hoeven te ervaren, lopen zij risico om een ernstig ziek kind te krijgen. Het is daarom belangrijk om ook dragers van hemoglobinopathieën tijdig op te sporen en hun de mogelijkheid tot preconceptionele diagnostiek te bieden.
