This was a retrospective medical record review of 55 consecutive children aged 2-18 years with sickle cell disease (SCD) (hemoglobin [Hb] SS and Hb SC genotypes) undergoing polysomnography for evaluation of sleep disordered breathing. Polysomnography values were compared between SCD genotypes, 4 age groups, and adenotonsillectomy status using descriptive and nonparametric statistics. Medical record data were collected for 12 months pre-polysomnography and 12 months post-polysomnography/adenotonsillectomy. This dataset includes demographic data, SCD type, polysomnographic values, and clinical measures.
