dc.description.abstract Sickle cell anemia is inherited hemolytic anemia, result in destruction of red cell membrane, this result in disturbance in sodium and potassium metabolism. The study aimed to estimate serum levels of sodium and potassium in patients with sickle cell anemia. This analytical study was conducted in Wed Medani pediatric teaching hospital, Gezira State, during July to October 2016. The study involved 60 patients with sickle cell anemia, both sex in age range of 6-17 years. 2.5 ml of blood samples was collected into lithium heparin containers and separated by centrifugation, and then sodium and potassium levels were estimated by ion selective electrode. Data were analyzed statistically by SPSS program. The results showed that the serum level of potassium was significantly high in crisis state patients when compared with steady state patients (6.347±0.2809, 4.285 ±0.7649) respectively. And Serum level of sodium was significantly low in crisis state patients when compared with steady state patients (M± SD= 130.65. ±4.898 ,137.84 ±4.530) respectively. There was no significantly difference in serum levels of sodium and potassium between gender groups (P 0.174, P 0.355) respectively. There was no significantly difference in serum levels of sodium and potassium between age groups (P0.378, P 0.560) respectively. The study recommended that the potassium level should be evaluate in sickle patients to reduce complication, more studies to evaluate the role of blood transfusion and correlation of potassium serum level. en_US
