Anemias and benign blood disorders


Benign blood disorders include both congenital and acquired disorders of the red blood cells (anemias), white blood cells (immunodeficiencies) and platelets (coagulation disorders, Platelet Disordersplatelet disorders).


In addition to Rare Anemiasrare diseases in the strict sense, we also count congenital blood conditions like sickle-cell disease or thalassemia among the rare anemias. In terms of the world population, these are actually the most common hereditary diseases, but since they occur almost exclusively among immigrants here in Central Europe, they are regarded as rare anemias.
