Childhood Hematology Disorder Symptoms

Symptoms vary according to the different blood disorders. Infants are screened at birth for hemoglobinopathies to detect sickle cell anemia before symptoms are even present. However, there are symptoms that are common to hematologic disorders, including: 

  • Bruising or skin bleeding 
  • Pain
  • Frequent infections
  • Swelling in the hands and/or feet
