OBJECTIVE To derive height and weight growth reference curves for children with homozygous sickle cell disease. STUDY DESIGN Subjects (n = 315) were participants in a population based, longitudinal cohort study of sickle cell disease in Kingston, Jamaica. Regular measurements of height and weight were made from enrollment into the study at birth up to 22 years of age. RESULTS Sex specific growth reference curves for height for age and weight for age covering the age range 0-18 years are presented. CONCLUSIONThese growth reference curves are suitable for identifying coincidental growth problems in children with homozygous sickle cell disease.
